I feel like green beans are one of the most under rated side dishes. They are so good! You can eat them steamed, pressure cooked, air fried, even cooked on the grill! Green beans are flattering in color to a variety of main dish meals like this copycat Alice Springs chicken or even a flakey salmon and with this recipe, are done in a pinch.

Plus, with a kitchen essential like the Ninja Foodi, you already know how quickly and easily a pressure cooker makes cooking. Let’s get started!

Common Green Bean Recipe Questions

More or Less Liquid? Ninja Foodi Recipes say you need at least 1/2 cup of liquid in it to pressure cook. My instant pot says 1 cup of liquid. Therefore, I recommend you read your manual to make sure you know what your appliance needs if you are not using the Ninja Foodi all in one pressure cooker.

I thought French Style Green Beans were Cut? They aren’t cut French style. They are whole beans. The package said “French style” and I think they are skinnier than a regular green bean. A standard green bean seems to have more girth .

What if I have a different pressure cooker? The recipe SHOULD be the same but pressure can build differently on the quart size of the cooker, so always refer to your products recipe guide to double check the timing. If you have an instant pot or another type of cooker and test out altering the food prep, please let me know if the timing worked for you.
