Instructions Checklist

  • Add carrots, bacon, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a simmer. Stir in split peas. Close and lock the lid; set release knob to Sealing position.

  • Select Manual/Pressure Cook setting according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 18 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 15 minutes. Turn steam release knob to Venting and use quick-release function for the remaining pressure. Carefully open lid. Remove bay leaves. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.

Cook's Note:

For a vegetarian version, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth and 1 teaspoon liquid smoke for the bacon.
