Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 6 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I immediately turned the steam release handle to the venting position and performed a quick release.

When the quick release was completed, I removed the lid from the pot.
