Add the water to the Instant Pot. Then add the prepared broccoli, salt, and pepper.
Seal the lid and cook for zero-minutes followed by a quick release. The broccoli will cook in the time it takes the pot to come to pressure.
If you model cannot be set to zero-minutes then set for 1-minute. Once the pot comes to pressure then cancel and do the quick release.
Serve immediately, or store in an airtight for up to three days. Reheat briefly in the microwave.
