How to Cook Instant Pot Sausage with Mushrooms
For this recipe you won’t need very many ingredients at all!
Here is what you will need to cook this recipe:
- 1 lb sausage of choice
- 1 lb cremini mushrooms
- 1 cup of water
- salt and pepper to taste
That’s it! And the only equipment you will need is your Instant Pot and a measuring cup for the water.
No chopping or cutting required!
Make sure your mushrooms are cleaned first if they are dirty.
One tip to cleaning mushrooms is to use a damp paper towel to gently brush off any visible dirt. Most mushrooms that are grown indoors are already free of pesticides and dirt so they might be clean enough as is.
Add water and mushrooms to the Instant Pot first. Then put the sausages on top of the mushrooms.
Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn the valve to the Sealing position.
Press the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” button and set the time to 15 minutes High pressure (if using frozen sausages, set the time to 20 minutes High pressure).
When the Instant Pot is done cooking, quick release (QR) the steam.
Drain the sausage and mushrooms from water and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer to plate for serving.
You can also add on other seasoning of your choice here, such as Italian seasoning! Yum!
- You can use fresh or frozen sausages for this recipe. If using frozen, increase the cook time by 5 minutes.
- If serving to children, cut open the sausage to let it cool slightly before serving.
- Add your own seasoning such as garlic powder, onion powder, and/or oregano for additional flavor!

I literally enjoyed this 15 minutes ago. So good! I used baby bella mushrooms and mild Italian sausage. I was worried about the texture of the mushrooms being steamed. But texture was great. Meaty! Used salt and pepper to season. That’s all they needed for me. My wife liked too. And recipe couldn’t be any easier. This is a keeper! Might try pasta sauce instead of water in the future. Great recipe! Thank You for sharing this one!
