  • 1 cup water
  • 1 lb Fingerling or gold potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp Salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice & parsley optional


  • Add the water to the bottom of your Instant Pot, then place your steamer basket in the pot.
  • Toss in about 1 pound of cubed potatoes, then cover and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Use the Quick Release to depressurize. Remove the cooked potatoes and discard any leftover water.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the pot and turn on “Sauté." When the oil is hot, add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Let the potatoes cook for a minute or two (until browned), then flip and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and little parsley. Delicious!
