Place lid on top of Instant Pot and turn valve to SEALING (not venting).
Press MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOK) and set timer for 4 minutes.
Once it's done cooking, do a QUICK RELEASE of the pressure (if foam and bubbles start spewing out, move the valve back to venting and wait a minute or two for some of the pressure to die down before opening the valve back up).
Remove the lid
