Instant Pot® Split Pea and Ham Soup
Cooking split peas under pressure makes them nearly instantly creamy. This recipe is very close to a classic split pea soup, but I have the option of cooking with or without a meaty ham bone. If you just have ham, it will be just as great with the combination of celery, carrots, onions, potatoes, and split peas. Get ready for a thick and flavorful broth!
You can use a ham bone or smoked ham hock instead of diced ham. If doing this, add the ham bone when you add the chicken broth, split peas, and bay leaves. After releasing pressure, remove the ham bone, pull all the meat off of it, and return it to the pot.
