  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices

  • ¾ cup chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed


  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot) and select the Sauté function. Melt butter in the pot. Add potato rounds in a single layer and cook in melted butter until golden, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove potatoes and set aside.

  2. Place the trivet inside the pot. Pour in chicken broth, then season with thyme, salt, and pepper. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute. Place potatoes on the trivet; close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set the timer for 1 minute.

  3. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove potatoes from the pot.

  4. Select Sauté function and cook chicken broth and butter mixture until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Place potatoes back into the pot in a single layer. Cook until golden, about 3 minutes per side.
