Adapted from Skinny Louisiana… in the Slow Cooker

Instant Pot Beans


2 cups of Rouses Fresh Cut Seasoning (onions, bell peppers, celery)

1 1 lb. pkg. dried red beans

2 tbsp. light Cajun Seasoning

32 oz. low-sodium or unsalted vegetable broth

Optional (cooked sausage, rice, etc)

Cook on high pressure for 30-40 minutes. When Instant Pot beeps, allow to naturally release. When valve drops, unlock lid, and serve.

5 Instant Pot Tips from Shelly

  • Start with a simple recipe – beans – meatballs.
  • Practice with recipes that do not require saute.
  • 3 most important buttons – keep warm/on button, saute, and manual button
  • Make sure to flip SEAL button – if not, the instant pot will not come to pressure.
  • Can always add MORE seasoning to the dish when complete.
