Instructions
Prepare Rice
  1. Add the rice, salt, and 1 1/2 cups water to the Instant Pot inner pot and stir. Secure the lid, ensuring the valve is turned to the Sealing position. Select the Rice button. The timer will self-calculate.
  2. Once cooking is complete, turn the valve to the Venting position to release the pressure. When all the pressure is released, carefully remove the lid. Fluff the rice with a fork. Transfer the rice to a large bowl, garnish with parsley, and set aside. Wash and dry the inner pot.
Prepare Red Beans & Sausage
  1. Add all the remaining ingredients plus 3 cups water to the inner pot and stir well. Secure the lid, ensuring the valve is turned to the Sealing position. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the time to 45 minutes.
  2. Once cooking is complete, allow the appliance to natural release for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the valve to the Venting position to release the pressure.
  3. When all the pressure is released, carefully remove the lid and stir well. Serve the bean/sausage mixture and rice either separately or combined.

    My second dish with my pot. Beans weren’t as soft as i typically like, but the wife they were ok. Great tasting!

    Excellent! This is a new staple in my house. I doubled the cayenne because I love spice. Left it going an extra 10 minutes to get the beans fully cooked

    Really good basic recipe. I did add five minutes to the cooking time, and added a chopped up red bell pepper to go with the green one. But really tasty and easy!

    This turned out great! Had to cook a little longer beans were a little hard at the pdirected time.

    My first dish in my new InstaPot and it’s a winner. I was looking for something to make with my leftover smoked turkey. So I used that instead of the sausage. Added some Crystal hot sauce once in the bowl. Great flavors and so easy!

    Review update. I fixed it by sauteeing on high while stirring until the liquid reduced. Then sauteed on low for a bit. Then on keep warm until the liquid thickened. It came out great and my family loved it. Sorry for the negative review. I wish i could change it. Ty for the recipe!

    First time to cook in IP soaked beans over night mixed all together used 2 cups of chicken broth and creole seasoning , cooked 55 minutes, VERY GOOD

    1 cup of red beans is a major mistake in this recipe. Maybe 1 pound? It’s water and sausage if you follow the 1 cup.

    I feel like the cooking time is a little off. The beans were still a little too firm and all the flavor was cooked out of the sausage. This made the beans VERY spicy with the added cayenne. My wife and kids couldn’t handle the heat! I would suggest cooking the beans alone for 45 minutes and then throwing everything else in and cooking for another 15. Omit the cayenne pepper if you or family cant handle the heat or if your sausage is already spicy.
