Instant Pot Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus


This quick, impressive side dish is done in a few minutes with the use of an Instant Pot. I do not recommend bacon, as it is generally sliced much thicker than prosciutto.

  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed

  • 4 ounces prosciutto

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth


  1. Bundle together 3 asparagus spears, or 5 spears if they are slender. Wrap 1 prosciutto slice around each asparagus bundle, catching the beginning edge of the prosciutto around one spear of asparagus.

  2. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot) and select Saute function. Melt butter. Place prosciutto-wrapped asparagus bundles seam-side down into the Instant Pot and saute until prosciutto is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Turn bundles over and cook until prosciutto is browned, 2 more minutes. Turn bundles over the rest, seam-side down. Pour chicken broth into pot. Select steam pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 3 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

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