Press sauté on instant pot. Once heated, add oil, then the onions, carrots and celery. Sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally
Add beans, broth, water, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, bay leaf and salt
Seal IP and make sure venting knob is in the sealed position. Press pressure cooker button and set timer to 25 minutes. It will take 10 minutes to come to pressure before the timer starts to count down
Once the timer dings, either let the pressure release naturally (will take up to 25 minutes) or carefully release by hand, which takes around 3 minutes.I carefully tap the knob, every few seconds being careful not to let the steam hit my hand. Lastly, I turn the venting knob all the way to the venting position just to be sure before I open the IP.
Scoop out some beans and place in an individual sized bowl. Serve the instant pot black beans with some meat and veggies
Added 10 - 15 minutes to prep time for the IP to come to pressure.
