1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced onion, optional
1 pound smoked sausage, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1-1.5 cups chicken stock
2 pounds potatoes cubed
32 ounces canned green beans, drained
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
Turn Instant Pot to saute and allow to heat up for a minute or two.
Add in olive oil, sausage, and the minced onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes, or until the sausage begins to be brown and the onions soften. Turn the Instant Pot OFF.
Add in the stock and scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the inner pot.
Add in potatoes on top of the sausage and sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning. Add drained green beans on top of sausage.
Close the Instant Pot and seal the vent knob to sealed.
Hit manual or pressure cook and adjust cook time to 2 minutes on HIGH pressure. For the Ultra model, hit Ultra, then adjust to high pressure and then adjust to cook for 2 minutes.
Once cook time has elapsed, let pressure release naturally for at least 5 minutes. Then do a fast release of pressure by hitting the vent knob from sealed to venting, being careful to stand away from the steam being released. You can also let pressure release naturally.
