Did you know hard boiled eggs can melt in your mouth? I didn't until this recipe. Not too hard, not too soft, no weird grey-green color...these are the eggs Goldilocks would eat! I don't have a pressure choice on my pot-either I'm using pressure or I'm not. I've found that the ice bath is not necessary, either, if you don't have a bunch of ice on hand. I have a silicone collander that holds 8-12 eggs perfectly, so I use that rather than a rack, & once the pressure is released, I use tongs or finger holders to move the colander to my sink which I stopper & fill with cold water. Once I can hold an egg in my bare hands, I start peeling. I might have 1 cracked egg out of 8-12 eggs (yes, I've done a full dozen with the same exact timing & it comes out just like doing 8 eggs).

I will always use this method. Few spot-on changes: 1. Add enough water to just come to the bottom of the basket in your pressure cooker. 2. I placed 10 eggs (what my basket will hold). 3. I brought the pressure cooker to steam, reduced steam to low for three minutes. 4. Pressure cook eggs at steam time for only three minutes. 5. Removed pressure cooker from heat, released steam for 5 minutes total. 6. Open pressure cooker, remove basket of eggs, plunge into ice cold water until ice cubes melt. 7. Makes PERFECT "boiled" eggs. **Separate Note** Peeling the cooked eggs is easier under running cold water if you break the "flatter end of the egg, get the running water and fingers under the membrane of the egg, the rest of the peel should slide off easier.
