Soft and tender beans get cooked up with spicy andouille sausage and TONS of Cajun flavor in this Instant Pot Red Beans and Rice recipe. Thanks to the pressure cooker you can have this authentic Louisiana recipe ready to enjoy in less than an hour AND without having to soak any beans.
Set a 6-quart Instant Pot to the sauté function. Add 1 tablespoon of oil along with the cut sausage. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until sausage begins to brown. Remove from the pot and let drain on a paper towel plate.
Add red beans and sausage along with the Worcestershire sauce, paprika, cayenne pepper, oregano, basil, thyme, salt, pepper, and bay leaves. Stir to combine.
While the beans are cooking, cook rice and water on the stovetop according to package directions.
