Quickly sort through the black beans, making sure there are no small rocks in them. Add beans to Instant Pot.
Add water, salt and onion (optional) to Instant Pot. Stir so everything is combined. Cook on HIGH PRESSURE for 30 minutes. Let the beans rest, naturally releasing the pressure, this takes about 20 minutes. Once steam has escaped, carefully remove the lid.
Drain beans as there will be excess liquid. Enjoy the black beans immediately, store in refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze in freezer bags for up to 6 months.
This recipe makes 8 cups cooked black beans. I prefer making a large batch of black beans, to eat immediately and freeze for later on.
