Instant Pot Homestyle Vegetables

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes plus 5 minute NPR
  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


A big pot of red potatoes, carrots and green beans steamed in your Instant Pot in a few minutes. These vegetables make a perfect side dish to a chicken, fish or beef dinner. 


  • 1 cup water or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 lb whole peeled carrots, cut into large pieces
  • 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 lbs red potatoes, cut in half (if they are medium sized potatoes, if they are baby potatoes then don’t cut them at all)


  1. Pour water or broth into the bottom of your Instant Pot. Place steamer basket* into the Instant Pot. Fill steamer basket with prepared potatoes, carrots and green beans. I like to put the potatoes on the bottom.
  2. Cover the Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to “sealing.” Set the manual/pressure cook button to 5 minutes. When the timer beeps indicating the time is up let the pot sit for 5 additional minutes if you want the vegetables a little more soft. If you like the vegetables less soft then perform a quick release. Then move the valve to venting.
  3. Open the pot and serve vegetables. We like to put a little butter on our veggies and some salt and pepper. You can season with whatever fancy seasonings you like!


I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*.

You can use baby carrots instead of whole carrots.

I haven’t made this particular recipe in the slow cooker yet, but you totally could. I would add all ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
