Cuisine: Chinese
Serving: 2 - 4
  • ⅔ pound (300g) ground beef
  • 1 -2 cups (65g) spinach, roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup (173g) Jasmine rice (using standard 250ml measure cup)
  • 7 cups (1750ml) cold water
  • 1 stalk green onion, finely chopped
Ground Beef Marinade
  1. Marinate the Ground Beef: In a mixing bowl, marinate ⅔ lb (300g) ground beef with ⅓ tsp fine sea salt, ¼ tsp sesame oil, and ⅓ tsp white pepper for 20 minutes.
  2. Pressure Cook the Beef Congee: Add ¾ cup (173g) of Jasmine rice, marinated ground beef, and 7 cups (1750ml) cold water into the pressure cooker. Close the lid and cook at High Pressure for 25 minutes + Full Natural Release (~18 minutes). Open the lid carefully.

  4. Serve: Remove congee from heat and garnish with green onions. Serve with your favorite main dishes.
This is a mildly-flavored, comforting congee intended for the unwell, cold weather, or a side dish served with big flavor meat/veggie dishes.
