Add the rinsed dry beans to pressure cooker. Cover with 1 inch of water.
Pressure cook for 1 minute. Release pressure, drain and rinse beans.

Place the rinsed beans to the Instant Pot, add the remaining ingredients except salt.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, lock in place and turn the valve to sealing.

Select the MANUAL setting, set cook time for 15-20 minutes on HIGH pressure. It will take your pressure cooker about 10 minutes to get up to pressure. This is normal.

Once the beans are done cooking, allow the pressure to naturally release for 15 minutes before quick releasing the remaining pressure.

Remove bay leaves. Stir in salt to taste.

Drain some (or all of the cooking liquid off of beans. How much you drain off is up to you. If you plan on enjoying all of the beans right away, feel free to remove as much of the liquid as you like. However, if you plan to store these beans, I recommend saving some to help the beans from becoming too dry in the fridge. Or keep all the cooking liquid in and enjoy the beans as a soup.
