All you need are 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make this Easy Instant Pot Cabbage. It’s perfect when you need a quick, simple, oil-free, healthy, and delicious side dish.
Growing up, cooked cabbage was served frequently in our home. Because it was cheap, easy, and could feed a lot of people. But, it wasn’t very healthy. It was always cooked with butter, lard, or pork.
Well, I still love cooked cabbage. But, now it’s actually healthy. It’s also much easier to cook with the invention of the Instant Pot.
This Easy Instant Pot Cabbage is one of my favorite things to make for our family. It’s delicious, easy, healthy, and requires hardly any prep. And, it’s also one of those “cheap Instant Pot recipes” everyone’s always talking about.
Alright, let’s do it!

How To Make Easy Instant Pot Cabbage
First, set your Instant Pot to saute and let it completely heat up. While the world’s greatest pressure cooker is heating up roughly chop your cabbage and dice an onion.
Change the setting to Manual on the Instant Pot, add the remaining vegetable broth and the chopped cabbage. Close the lid and turn the venting knob to the sealing position. Now, cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.
Once it’s finished cooking allow the pressure to release naturally or simply do a quick release. Personally, I like to let it release on its own so the cabbage can marinate in the veggie broth and spices a little longer.
Once the pressure is gone just remove the lid, season with salt and pepper, stir the cabbage and serve.
That’s it! It is literally one of the easiest pressure cooker recipes you can make.
NOTE: If you want more crunch cook for 2-3 minutes. And, if you want your cabbage super soft cook for 6-7 minutes.
