These Instant Pot Southern Green Beans taste just like slow cooked southern green beans but only take about 45 minutes in the Instant Pot instead of hours on the stove!


Normally it takes hours for southern green beans to cook down and soak in the flavors but with this Instant Pot recipe, they cook in about 45 minutes and still have the amazing flavor that comes with the normally long cook time. I was hesitant at first, but the flavor is fantastic!
