Sausage Potatoes and Green Beans in the Instant Pot

This Sausage Green Beans and Potatoes is my very favorite meal to make in the Instant Pot!!  I'm sure it would be great in the slow cooker, too, if you'd like to make it that way.  I like using a mixture of red, purple, and white tiny potatoes for this meal. This, along with some cornbread,   is such a comforting meal.  I hope you can try it.

Sausage Green Beans and Potatoes in the Instant Pot

This fabulous meal cooks in 3 minutes!


  • 3/4 cup chicken broth (I use about 1 teaspoon of Better Than Bouillon Roasted Chicken + 3/4 cup water)
  • 12 ounces smoked sausage (I love the jalapeno one), sliced
  • About 1 pound of mixed tiny potatoes, or red or yellow ones that are quartered
  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Pour chicken broth into the instant pot.
  2. Add the sausage, potatoes, and green beans into the pot.
  3. Sprinkle the seasoning and pepper on top and toss with a spoon.
  4. Cut the butter into small pieces and place them in the pot.
  5. Cover the Instant Pot with the lid and make sure that the valve is in the sealing position.
  6. Cook  on manual, high pressure, for 3 minutes, followed by a quick release.
  7. Once the pin drops, remove the lid and stir.
  8. Enjoy!


The original recipe added a teaspoon of salt, but I don't think it needs it since the Cajun seasoning has salt, and the butter and broth have salt, too.

Thank you for your visit!  xo

  1. Such a hearty, comforting and quick meal Kitty! I love it served up in your pretty red heart bowl on your English Countryside plate! ♥

  2. I don't have an instant pot, but I think I could make this in my dutch oven or like you said the crock pot. It sounds really good and hearty!! Thank you for sharing it with us!

  3. Oh Man! This looks good.. I do not have an insta pot but I assume I could slow cook it on the stove? The little heart bowl is darling!

  4. My son would love this recipe, I'm going to pass it along to him, thanks Kitty!

  5. Kitty that looks so good and I printed the recipe. My insta pot is large so I use it for my larger crowd (kids and grands) mostly. I need to purchase me a small one for just Marty and I. I love tenderizing my meats when I am in a hurry in my instapot too. This recipe looks right up our alley. Hugs and blessings to you Kitty. Thank you for your prayers too. Cindy

  6. I don't have an Insta Pot but I do have a crock pot. Your soup looks pretty in the heart shaped dish and it sounds very hearty as well as easy to make. Hubby would enjoy it as he loves potatoes; a true Irishman! Have wonderful week, my dear friend! Hugs...Sandi
