Get the perfect brown rice in just 30 minutes using your Instant Pot!



2 1/2 cups brown rice

3 cups water


1. Using a fine mesh sieve, rinse brown rice thoroughly under cold, running water. Place rinsed rice in the bowl of your Instant Pot and cover with water. 

2. Secure lid onto instant pot and set to “pressure cook” (or “manual” if you have an older model) for 22 minutes on high pressure. Make sure vent is set to the “sealing” position. Once the time is up, allow pot to release pressure naturally for about 10 minutes before shifting vent to “venting” position. Allow pressure to release completely before opening pot.
