Instant Pot® Black Beans
Cook time can range from 20 to 25 minutes based on the consistency you prefer. Choose a shorter time if the beans are going into a soup, because they will continue cooking. Cook longer if the beans are for salads or other side 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.
