Perfectly Cooked & Seasoned Instant Pot Brown Rice


Adapted from: Ground Leaf

I have this 6-qt Instant Pot, which is important only because the size of the pot may affect the timing. These instructions work perfectly for my Instant Pot every time.


for the rice:

  • 1 cup short grain brown rice, I’ve been using Lundberg organic
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt

for the dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon mirin
  • 3 scallions finely sliced


1. Place all ingredients the inner pot of your Instant Pot.

2. Secure lid in place. Turn valve to Sealing.  Select manual, high pressure, and adjust the time to 22 minutes.

3. When the time has lapsed, allow the pressure to release naturally, which is when the silver button on the lid drops. Remove lid and dress with the soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, and scallions. Toss to combine. Taste and adjust as needed.
