Instant Pot Rice. The easiest dish you will ever make. Fluffy, buttery rice made so simple in under 20 minutes!

Instant Pot Rice

Perfect Rice. Every time!

One of the easiest things I tell people to cook in their Instant Pot is rice. It is quick and oh so easy. One of the things I have always had a hard time with is rice. This really was a game changer for me. When my sweet Momma gave me my Instant Pot, I was excited to try rice but not hopeful that I could cook it in there. Well, let me tell you, I hollered! I mean HOLLERED! It was PERFECT!!!

The Electric Pressure cooker has made lots of things much easier for me. Whether it is to improve time spent in the kitchen, like with our INSTANT POT BABY BACK RIBS or to even help with dishes we have trouble with, like our INSTANT POT CHEESE GRITS, the pressure cooker helps in many, many ways.

So now, the IP is the ONLY way I cook rice! It is so simple, let me show you.

How to Make It!

Four ingredients! How much simpler can it be? The EPC is a lot like your crock pot and sure helps with taking something like rice and making it easy. No babysitting required! No pots boiling over or a messy clean up.

~Ingredients

  • 1 cup white or jasmine rice
  • 2 cups water or chicken broth
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Butter

~Method

  1. Add rice, water, salt and butter into the inner pot of the Instant Pot.
  2. Close lid, seal vent and set to manual or pressure cook for 8 minutes.
  3. When done, turn off or cancel and allow pressure to naturally release for 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Carefully release vent to relieve any remaining pressure.
  5. Carefully open lid and fluff with a fork. Serve and Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

Can I use this recipe with Brown Rice?

You sure can. You will need to increase your cook time if you are using traditional brown rice to 15 to 20 minutes for that. If you are using instant brown rice, the cook time is the same.

Can I use herbs or vegetables in with the rice?

Yes, by all means get creative and add things to make it different. Experimentation is how great heirloom recipes are born! We like adding onion and peppers right in with our rice to spice things up.

How can I make the rice taste better without adding broth?

One way to do this is to rinse your rice well and drain. Then, turn on the saute function of your IP and toast the rice a bit. This will give you a nutty, deep flavor without adding broth! Turn the saute function off and cook as directions given.

Well there it is folks. The thing that sold me on my Instant Pot. The old saying about things that seem too good to be true does NOT apply here. Try it and I hope you love it. This recipe and my recipe for Deviled Eggs, should be the first things anyone should make in their new IP!
