Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker White Rice can be made with water or broth and will be on your table in less than 15 minutes with your Pressure Cooker.
Pressure Cooker White Rice
Making rice in an Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker, is not only easy, it is lightening fast.
Whether you use a sauce pan on the stove or your favorite Rice Maker, you are going to be waiting about 20 minutes for white rice.
Imagine making Pressure Cooker White Rice in your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker in just minutes!
Instant Pot Pressure Cooker White Rice is so easy and without any fuss or standing over the stove!
I own a Zojurishi Rice maker, which I absolutely love. It makes the best rice ever. I’ve been using an Pressure Cooker since 2004, yet still used my Zojurishi Rice maker because I was afraid to stray from perfectly delicious rice.
The only problem with the Zo, is that it takes about 20 minutes.
A couple of years ago, I decided to use my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker to cook Jasmine Rice. After a few trials and errors, I found that I like to under cook my rice and then let it steam (by incorporating the Natural Pressure Release method) until it was perfect.
A “rice cup” is just 6 oz, so measure accordingly.
A coffee cup can be any size, right? You would not use your favorite coffee cup to measure and assume it is a standard 8 oz dry or wet measuring cup.
The coffee cup I use in the morning holds 10 oz of liquid. Okay, so, now you now. A “rice” cup is just that…a vessel for measuring rice.
If you want to cook your rice WITH your chicken, check our my Pressure Cooker One Pot Chicken and Rice for the recipe and timing.
The Natural Pressure Release Method, is to just do absolutely nothing and wait for the Pressure Cooker to release all the pressure, which takes about 10 minutes.
It’s really simple. Rice, Salt and Pressure Cooker Bone Broth, or water!
Place your rice in a Steamer/Rinsing Basket and rinse under cool water, until the water runs clear
I love to use Jasmine rice, but any white rice will be awesome in the Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker.
Plus, this RSVP Stainless Steel Strainer Basket does double duty. It’s great for cooking vegetables.
No need for a separate plastic rice washer basket accessory!
Mix the rice with the liquid and then lock on the lid. See, it is so incredible simple. Just set the time and walk away.
Any white rice will work for this recipe. We like to use Jasmine Rice because of the fragrance and the lovely taste.
Add a dollop of Homemade Ghee for a delicious buttery taste.
Turn your meal into a one pot meal!
Jasmine Rice is wonderful in my Pressure Cooker Thai Triple Coconut Rice recipe, so check that out while you are in the neighborhood. 🙂
