The method I prefer to cook my eggs is 5 minutes high pressure, quick pressure release after 5 minutes followed by a 5-minute ice bath. Commonly referred to as the 5-5-5 method.

I realize that not everyone likes their yolks the same way so you might want to experiment a bit. If you don’t like the yolk using my method I would recommend increasing the cooking time in 1-minute increments until you find them to your liking.

If you do decide to increase the cooking time, I still recommend a quick pressure release after 5 minutes and a 5 minute ice bath afterwards.
