½ cup butter

(1) lb of Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch slices

¾ cup chicken broth

1 tsp ground thyme

1 tsp salt

½ tsp ground black pepper

(2) cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed


First, turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Melt butter, then add potato rounds in a single layer and cook until golden for about 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove potatoes and set aside.

Place the trivet inside the pot. Add and pour in chicken broth and season with thyme, salt, and pepper. Add garlic, cook for a minute. Place potatoes on the trivet; close and lock the lid. Then select high pressure according to manufacturer’s instructions; set timer for a minute.

Make sure to release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to the manufacturer’s instructions for about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove potatoes from the pot.

Select Saute function and cook chicken broth and butter mixture until slightly reduced about 2 minutes. Then place potatoes back to the pot in a single layer, and cook again until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
