Do you love Instant Pot rice recipes? I bet you do. You can make rice easily in your Instant Pot. It is actually my preferred way to make rice. It is so easy to cook rice in an Instant Pot. You simply add your water and rice, you use the rice setting on your Instant Pot, and in less than 30 minutes you have delicious rice.

I think by pressure cooking rice you get rice that is perfectly cooked, and for me, this cooks more quickly in a pressure cooker than with a rice cooker. If you have followed me for any length of time online you will know one of my dirty little secrets, I can’t cook rice on the stovetop. I simply lack this talent. You may have the skill, I do not have it.

For this recipe, I am using plain long grain rice. I haven’t tried making this recipe with brown rice, or even basmati rice, so this recipe is just for regular long-grain rice. You will also need 2 cans of French Onion soup, 2 cans of beef consume, some Worcestershire sauce, and a stick of butter. You don’t need to add any water.

This recipe does vary from the one that you bake in the oven, it uses less butter. It actually uses half of the butter, but it comes out just as flavorful. I know if you try this recipe you will soon fall in love with this recipe.

      I always rinse my rice before cooking. I learned to cook rice in SW Asia while stationed there. It removes a lot of the surface starch. I was told that the starch causes the rice to stick together while cooking if you don’t rinse it. I like the rice to be fluffy and rinsing ensures that.

    Do you use the rice cup that came with instant pot for measuring rice and a regular measuring cup for measuring other liquid? I know it makes a difference.

    Is there any way to make it with whole foods—without the canned French Onion Soup and canned Beef Consume? I have plenty of homemade beef stock. Do you think I could cook it down and caramelize onions?

    • Stephanie Manley

      You could do it with your own beef stock and French onion soup, I don’t think it will taste quite the same. For the recipe to work, just make sure your liquid/rice ratio is as written in the recipe.

    As there are only two of us in this household lots of rice at one time is not required. I usually make the amount specified and freeze the rest.. It thaws beautifully with the grains all separate. Just a quick nuke in the microwave and we are set to go. I love my Instant pot.

    • Mary Jo

      The recipe that I have is half of this. 1 can each of the soups, 1 stick butter, 1 C rice. I rinse my rice also and I add a large can of mushrooms. I have been making this for many years. It’s AWESOME!!! Haven’t tried it in my Instant Pot yet tho

  4. Glenda

    Does this recipe for the Instant Pot use 1 stick of butter or 1/2 stick of butter. I’m a little confused because it says it uses less than the oven method. The oven method shows 1 Stick of butter and so does this recipe. I just want to make sure I have it right before I try it, Looks delicious. Thank you!

    I can’t wait to get a pressure cooker and try this. I’m like you; can’t cook regular rice on the stove to save my life. I just buy instant rice, or those pouches of microwave rice. They both work fine, but cost a lot more in the long run.

  6. Nancy Killius

    Looks like a great rice recipe except we can not have all that sodium. Do you have any quick recipes with low sodium?
