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, and delicious side dish.


  • 1 head of green cabbage, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 Tbsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Set your Instant Pot to saute and let it completely heat up. Cook the onions with 1 Tbsp. of vegetable broth for about 2-3 minutes. Then, add the oregano and thyme and cook for about 1 minute.
  2. Change the setting to Manual on the Instant Pot, add the remaining vegetable broth and chopped cabbage. Close the lid and turn the venting knob to the sealing position. Now, cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.

  3. Once the cabbage is finished cooking allow the pressure to release naturally or simply do a quick release.

  4. Remove the lid, season with salt and pepper, stir, and serve.


Letting the Instant Pot naturally release its pressure will allow the cabbage to marinate longer with the spices and add more flavor. 

Cooking time does not include time for Instant Pot to come to pressure. Usually around 10-15 minutes.
