Here’s yet another great use for your Instant Pot—easy pressure-cooked crab legs. It’s a quick, simple, and elegant dinner for two, or a fun spin on a seafood boil. Depending on the size of your Instant Pot, the amount of crab leg clusters you can cook at a time is limited, but the prep and cleanup is so easy and the result is so delicious and tender you’ll never want them any other way.
