Instant Pot White Rice Recipe

Instant Pot White Rice

Hi everyone.  I have another very simple Instant Pot recipe to share with you.  It's how to make white rice that comes out perfect every time.

White Rice Made in Instant Pot

In our house we LOVE rice and I make it at least once a week.  We love it as a side dish to a lot of our meals.  We usually have rice with our chicken and fish meals for dinner.  My daughter likes to mix rice with guacamole and sometimes mixed in with eggs.

This tastes so good cooked this way and it always comes out light and fluffy.  You can even eat this by itself or add it to soups.

If you have an Instant Pot I'm sure you will love this easy and delicious way to make white rice.

Instant Pot White Rice
This is a fast and easy way to make perfect white rice in the Instant Pot.
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Rinse rice and place in the Instant Pot pan. Pour water over rice, add butter, and salt. Stir all of the ingredients in the pot. Place the lid on the Instant Pot. Secure in place and set to the Sealing position. Press Rice button and adjust the time to 12 minutes. Natural release for 10 minutes. After you hear the beeper, let it sit for 10 minutes. You can tell how long it has been by looking at the display. After 10 minutes, if the pressure is still up manually release the pressure.

I found this recipe when searching for an Instant White Rice recipe HERE.  I changed around the recipe a little bit.  I added butter instead of the oil and added a little bit more water so that the rice will not stick to the bottom of the pot.

NOTE:  To make brown rice, use same directions as above, but adjust time to 23 minutes and natural release and let sit for 10 minutes.  Remove pressure and lid.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all enjoy the week and weekend.
