  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds baby potatoes (or russet potatoes that have been peeled and cut into wedges)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 cup water (or broth of your choice)

Herb Seasoning:

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Chives chopped
  • Green onion chopped


  1. Turn on your pressure cooker or Instant Pot and select the Sauté function.
  2. In the meantime, in a large bowl, mix the potatoes with olive oil and all the ingredients from the Herb Seasoning section. Stir to combine.
  3. Once the Instant Pot reads HOT, add the oiled and seasoned potatoes in one layer. If needed cook the potatoes in batches.
  4. Do not stir the potatoes for 2-3 minutes, cook until golden on one side, stir and cook on the other side; for a total of about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from pot and repeat with the remaining potatoes.
  5. Once the potatoes have been browned, add all the potatoes to the pot. Pour in water or broth. Top with bay leaves, rosemary and thyme sprigs.
  6. TIP: to keep the potatoes crispier, add a trivet or steamer basket to the pot, this will keep them above the water and result in crispier on the outside potatoes.
  7. Close and lock the lid. Make sure the valve points to Sealed.
  8. Select high pressure and set timer for 7 minutes. Once the Instant Pot beeps, release pressure carefully using the quick-release method.
  9. Unlock and remove lid.
  10. Serve potatoes warm garnished with chopped chives and green onions.
