This is how easy it is to make pressure cooker ham and beans in your Instant Pot. Make it into a healthy bean soup using leftover ham, or thicken it up. Load it up with vegetables and it is a complete meal that everyone will love. No soaking required to cook these Northern dry beans if you follow these steps.
Rinse dry Northern or white beans under water, put them into your Instant Pot with your 6 cups of water.
Put lid on, close steam valve, and set to bean setting for 40 minutes. (timing will depend on how soft you like them but 40 works well for us). If you're using canned beans you would skip this step and start with adding vegetables below with your canned beans.
Do a natural release for 5 minutes, drain beans, and set aside.
Add carrots, celery, diced ham, salt, diced onion, broth, and your drained beans back into your pressure cooker. Stir gently.
Put lid on, close steam valve, and set to pressure high for 10 minutes.
