Dry Red Beans in the Instant Pot®
Cook beans for 25 minutes if they're going into a soup, because they will continue cooking. Cook for 30 minutes if you're going to use the beans in salads or other finished dishes.
Cooked beans freeze well! Pour cooled beans into an airtight container with some of the cooking liquid. Leave room at the top for expansion; cover with the lid and freeze. Or pour into a heavy-duty zip-top bag with some of the cooking liquid. Seal and place on a plate to freeze flat. Once frozen, the flat bags are easier to store.
