    I did it for one minute and then instant release of steam. I removed it from the pot as soon as humanly possible and it was still too mushy for my taste. But it was edible. Any longer whatsoever and it would be absolutely disgustingly mushy.

    1. Hi Dj,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Any recipe depends on the users taste. But the time we put was how our instant pot cooked the broccoli for our taste and it did not turn out like mush and was great for us. We had only had the instant pot for a few days at this point so may be we had not set up correctly but rest assured we will revisit this recipe and see exactly how it turns out for us with different timings and try to vary everything to see what can effect the cooking times between different instant pots.

      Kind Regards

    My broccoli too came out full mush. I am sad cause I used it all to try this as I just opened my instant Pot box. 2 minutes was definitely too long.

    1. Hi Angie

      Im sorry to hear that and that you used all your broccoli. We usually just try abit of the ingredients if we are unfamiliar with cooking something new just in case. We have had things not turn out and used all the ingriedients and know it is frustrating but we learned and now only use small amounts if we are new to something.

      Kind Regards

    I can’t imagine broccoli being too mushy, that’s just how I like my veggies, especially asparagus and green beans. But for my guests, I set the timer for 0 minutes for the broccoli and they were happy.

    Different strokes. I did one minute and it was mush. When I cook stove top I put stalks down and test with a sharp fork until it is easy to push into stalk. I think I will also have to try “0” and let pressure out ASAP and remove, if it is to work at all.

    1. Hi Alan,

      Exactly, different people like vegetables different ways. So all our cooking is based on our preferences and how the broccoli turned out for us. Glad you got yours how you like it 🙂

      Kind regards

    I’m new to InstantPot cooking and gave this a whirl. Two minutes was perfect! Thank you so much.

    Cooked it for 2 minutes and it was perfect. Thank you for the recipe Samantha and thanks also for showing us the different cook times for different types of broccoli. I hate my broccoli hard so glad i didn’t do zero minutes.

    Thank you so much for your instant pot broccoli recipe. I am just starting out with the instant pot and quite nervous using it and you have inspired me to use it more and get over my issues.

    I find it so funny how so many people have a different opinion on how long to cook broccoli in the instant pot. Another vote for 2 minutes. Though 0 minutes if using frozen.
