Instant Pot Low Country Boil
Instant Pot Low Country Boil
Low country boil is a famously flavorful one-pot feast of seafood, sausage, potatoes, and corn. It's an outdoor cooking classic, but fun indoors too.


  • 12 ounce beer or substitute same amount of water
  • 1/2 cup Water 
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 3 ears corn shucked and cut into thirds
  • 1 1/2 lbs red potatoes egg-sized
  • 12-16 ounces kielbasa smoked sausage 1 package , cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp cajun or creole seasoning (optional)
  • 2 tbsp Old Bay seasoning , divided
  • 1 1/4 lbs Shrimp medium to large
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Additional Old Bay for garnish (optional)
  • Cajun seasoning for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine beer, water, and garlic in the pot. Stir to combine.
  2. Add corn, potatoes and sausage. Sprinkle the cajun seasoning (if using) and 1 tbsp of the Old Bay and over the top.
  3. Secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  4. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- buttons and program the Instant Pot for 4 minutes.
  5. When the time is up, quick-release the remaining pressure.
  6. Add shrimp and sprinkle lemon juice and remaining 1 tbsp Old Bay over the top. Replace the lid and make sure the pot is still set to WARM. The residual heat will cook the shrimp. Check for doneness after 5 minutes.
  7. Use a slotted spoon to remove corn, potatoes, sausage and shrimp to a serving platter.
  8. Mix together butter and garlic powder. Pour butter mixture over the platter or serve on the side for dipping.
  9. Garnish with additional Old Bay and/or cajun seasoning. Serve warm.
