Instructions
  1. Press Sauté to pre-heat the Instant Pot. When "hot" appears on the display, add the vegetable oil.
  2. Add in the potatoes, garlic, and rosemary. Roll the potatoes around, browning the outside on all sides (roughly 8-10 minutes).
  3. With a sharp knife, pierce the middle of each potato (do not stir the potatoes anymore). Pour in the stock.
  4. Close and lock the lid of the Instant Pot. Press [Pressure Cook] and then use the [+] or [ - ] button to set 11 minutes of pressure cooking time.
  5. When time is up, release pressure and open the Instant Pot using Quick Pressure Release.
  6. Remove the outer skin of the garlic cloves and serve the garlic whole or smashed with the potatoes.
  7. Sprinkle everything with salt and pepper and serve!

    Came out delicious! Made my own modifications… Diced five cloves of garlic and sauted in oil before adding potatoes and seasoning. Used herbs de province instead of rosemary… Small change I’d make next time to this dish is piercing the potatoes before adding to the pot!

    This was the first recipe I made with the instant pot that failed miserably. I am not sure why it turned out bad. The flavor was there. However the potatoes were mushy and there was so much liquid left. The potatoes had no crunch.

    I will give this recipe one more try and next time I won’t cut the potatoes before I cook them.

    This was easy and super delicious. I added 4 large carrots to it and just used rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper with vegetable broth – no oil at all. It was superb!

    This was fast & fabulous! Iuaed dried rosemary, paraley, basil & oregano with olive oil. OMG!!! Sooooo good! We usually eat potatoes with butter & sour cream but this didn’t even need it.

    I tried this one yesterday causing a mess. After the sauté function I used the pressure cooking fuction and after 3 minutos the IP showed up a “BURN” message. I tried twice again with no better results.

    I decided to put the potatoes into the air fryer.

    Adding

    Saute timing is grossly underestimated. If you want color on the skin, you need to saute for 25-30 minutes. Pressure cooking time was perfect. Potatoes come out soft NOT crispy. This recipe nicely complements fish. There is quite a bit of water left at the bottom after cooking which makes the potatoes a bit soggy.

    Thefirst try was a huge failure, very mushy. The next time, On the advice of a coworker, I did the pressure cooking first, set it for 7 minutes. THEN I drained the pot, added a tablespoonful of olive oil and set it on sautee to brown them. That was much more successful.

    Roast Potatoes cooked in oven much better than this recipe. I followed the instructions exactily. Did not turn out at all as i expected. Disappointed.

    Delicious and cooked just right. Used baby potatoes that were 2 to 3 inches around and left the skin on. Also substituted stock for water which was fine.

    I felt the potatoes would have been much better in a skillet or in the oven. This was the first thing I have made in the instant pot that I haven’t cared for.

    Wow, the results are polar opposite. As someone who hasn’t tried this recipe yet I wonder what advice the author would suggest. I haven’t seen her chime in on any of the replies.

    Since potatoes do not absorb water their will still be water left that needs to be drained.

    Instant Pot and not the author.

    It comes to expectation and preference. This recipe mimics roasted potatoes since it is cooked with wet heat . If you would like a more crispy roasted potatoes you can pressure cook first then broil them second. Also the softness of the potatoes is a preference for people some like it cooked but not too soft where others like a very soft potato.
