  • 2 pkgs of traditional rope turkey sausage cut into half inch slices
  • 6-8 potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 4 cans of green beans
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • red pepper to taste


  • Place your potatoes in the bottom of your Instant Pot
  • Top with your onion
  • Add your sausage slices, green beans and water
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper and red pepper
  • Secure lid and set lid to seal. Set on Manual with the warming feature off (press manual button twice on Instant Pot to turn warming off) for 30 minutes. (Note: It will take approximately 15 minutes for pot to reach full pressure before the 30 minute timer will start.)
  • Let Instant Pot NATURALLY release (Do not immediately use quick release) for at least 15-20 minutes before quick releasing. I personally prefer to let it completely naturally release.


  • If you would rather make this in your crock pot, you can find the recipe here: Crock Pot Sausage, Green Beans and Potatoes.
  • We used a 6 quart Instant Pot to make this recipe. Using an electric pressure cooker is a great convenience in the kitchen, but ALWAYS follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for safety.
  • If using a smaller pot, you may need to reduce the recipe to avoid overflow.
  • DO NOT Quick Release this recipe immediately after cooking. Also, DO NOT EVER cover the vent of your electric pressure cooker. 
  • You can find more electric pressure cooker recipes with our Recipe Finder.
  • Check out all our favorite recommendations for cookbooks, slow cookers and low carb essentials in our Amazon Influencer Shop.
  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • Finally, all electric pressure cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own electric pressure cooker and time adjusted as needed.
