Step 1

Add broccoli florets to a steamer basket; rinse with tap water and drain. Pour the water and add salt into the pressure cooker pot.

Step 2

Set the steamer basket of broccoli on the bottom of the inner pot of the pressure cooker. Place the lid on the IP and set it to "seal".

Step 3

Manually set Instant Pot to cook on high pressure for 0 minutes for tender but firm broccoli. Use 1 minute for softer cooked broccoli.

Step 4

When pressure cooking is done, use a quick release by carefully turning the lever or pressing the pressure release button.

Step 5

Use pot holders to remove the steamer basket. Rinse the broccoli under cold water and drain before serving. Season with salt, pepper, or other seasoning of choice.
