Instant Pot Brown Rice
To cook brown rice in an instant pot is super simple and you will get the perfect rice every time without failing. Just put the rice with water in the instant pot and pressure cook for 22 minutes; that’s it. Fluffy rice will be ready within 40 minutes. I know, it takes time but I love the thing that there is no need to watch the rice while cooking, just add and forget it.
1 cup Brown Rice
1¼ cup Water
  1. Wash 1 cup brown rice and drain excess water.
  2. Place 1 cup washed brown rice and 1 ¼ cup water in an instant pot. Mix well.
  3. Close the lid and set the valve in sealing position.
  4. Cook on high-pressure mode for 22 minutes (Press the “Pressure Cook” button , choose “High Pressure Mode” and set 22 minutes.) Cancel the “Keep Warm” mode.
