Instant Pot Brown Rice

Every one seems to make their Instant Pot brown Rice a little different. But, this is how I do it and it comes our perfectly fluffy every time!

Start with a cup of water at the bottom of the instant pot and the metal trivet. Instant pot brown rice

 

 

 

 

Next in oven safe bow. ( That fits inside the Instant pot) place your water, rice, and butter.  stir.

 

I love this Pyrex one!

Mine is a 6 cup!  instant pot side dishes

 

 

 

Place bowl on top of trivet inside the Instant Pot. Close lid, make sure valve is set to seal.

 

Set Manual for 19 minutes.

I usually let it Naturally Pressure Release a little bit, mostly because I get busy doing other things. But, if you are in a hurry you can manually release the pressure when it stops cooking.

Fluff with a fork, add salt to taste (and I usually add more butter too!)

Creamy Chicken, Rice, & Broccoli – Instant Pot version

One of my favorite oven dinners is Creamy  Chicken, Rice and Broccoli.

So, I set out to convert it to the IP. The Result was an amazing dinner done under 30 minutes (and that’s with frozen chicken)

I used my 8 qrt DUO, and started out with 1 cup of water in the bottom of the pot, and then the trivet. ( I just happen to like chicken when it isn’t sitting in the liquid, but either way works.)

This particular day I used Bone-in chicken thighs. But you can use Chicken Breast too. And if you want to save yourself a step, just buy boneless.

Then I added a second trivet on top of the chicken. and the bowl of rice.  If you don’t have a second trivet you can put the bowl directly on top of the chicken.

In the bowl I put 1 cup of Uncle Ben’s brown rice. and 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth, Plus a slab of butter. Then placed the bowl on top of everything.  This method is called Pot in Pot cooking ( or PIP)

Set the lid, and make sure valve is set to seal. Then select Manual (or pressure cook) button and adjust to 23 minutes.

Make sure it is on high pressure.

The Pot came up to pressure surprisingly quick. And then when the 23 minutes was done, I let it naturally pressure release (NPR) for 5-10 minutes.  While I waited, I cheated a little bit and steamed my broccoli in the microwave. I could have waited and removed the chicken and rice and stuck the broccoli in the IP (If you want to do this, just select 0 minutes on the manual setting)

After releasing the remaining pressure, I set the bowl of rice aside. and took out the chicken. reserved the liquid for anything I need chicken broth for this week, and took the chicken off the bones.

I dumped in two cans of Cream of Mushroom soup and a splash of milk and dumped everything back in the pot to stir.

A sprinkle of pepper and paprika and dinner is done! (You don’t need salt if you are using the canned cream of mushroom soup)

I really love brown rice cooked like this in IP. It comes out fluffy and soft every time!
