  • 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 or Green onion chopped


  • Turn on your pressure cooker or Instant Pot and select the Sauté function.
  • 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.
  • Once the Instant Pot reads HOT, add the oiled and seasoned potatoes in one layer. If needed cook the potatoes in batches.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Close and lock the lid. Make sure the valve points to Sealed.
  • Select high pressure and set the timer for 7 minutes. Once the Instant Pot beeps, release pressure carefully using the quick-release method.
  • Unlock and remove the lid.
  • Preheat the broiler setting on your oven.
  • Optional: for a crispier texture, arrange the cooked potatoes on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and garlic powder. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until crispy.
  • Serve potatoes warm garnished with chopped chives and green onions.
