Instant Pot Hot Dogs

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 1 minute
Total Time 3 minutes

Whether you're cooking for a crowd, or lunch on a weekend, these Instant Pot Hot Dogs are so easy and flavorful. Top them with all the Chicago dog fixings!


  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 cup water


    1. In the Instant Pot, pour 1 cup of water into the bottom. Add hot dogs (as little or as many as you like, as long as you stay below the max fill line).
    2. Lock the lid in place and make sure the valve on top is set to “SEALING.”
    3. Select High Pressure for a cook time of ZERO minutes (the hot dogs will cook while the pot comes to pressure).
    4. When the Instant Pot beeps, do a quick release of the pressure by turning the valve on top to “VENTING.”
    5. Remove the lid and enjoy your hot dogs!


For a Chicago style hot dog, you'll need:

  • Poppy Seed Bun
  • All beef hot dogs
  • Dill pickle spear
  • Fresh tomato slices (halved)
  • Diced onions
  • Pickle relish- to get the neon green add a drop of blue food coloring
  • Mustard
  • Sport Peppers– similar to pepperoncini, only smaller
  • Celery Salt


  • This recipe was created for the 6qt Instant Pot. If using the 8qt, increase water to 2 cups.
  • No need to change cook time or water amount regardless of how many hot dogs you are cooking.
  • Swap out the water for your favorite beer for a unique flavor!
