Very tasty! I do think mine overcooked as they were very soft and absorbed almost all the broth. I added some water before serving to compensate. Next time I will shorten the release to quick release only. Made for Billboard tag.

This was so easy to make, took less than an hour from start to finish, and had a perfect consistency. I'm a BIG FAN of this Instant Pot Pea Soup... the 6 cups of chicken broth worked magic with my split peas. I had green split peas, and followed the recipe as directed using bacon drippings instead of butter. I was rushed at lunch and couldn't take a nice picture of the soup in a bowl, but I posted a picture of what it looked like in the pressure cooker. A faster, easier way to make a classic soup. THANKS FOR POSTING!
