Make this Healthy Instant Pot Congee (Jook) Recipe with Minced Beef & Spinach! Nutritious & soothing 7-ingredient pressure cooker congee. Perfect for post-holidays & when you’re feeling under the weather.
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.
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.
Thicken the Congee: The congee will look watery at this point. Add in 2oz (65g) of roughly chopped spinach. Heat up the pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press Sauté button), stir until desired thickness & consistency. Season with salt.
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.
