  1. I tried a simple rice, condensed mushroom soup and frozen chicken combo, it went well for my first attempt ever, but the chicken didn’t fully cook all the way. I did pressure cook for 10 minutes. What can I do to ensure it’s fully cooked next time?

    1. Hi Julie,

      Thank you for your question 🙂

      Frozen chicken will work better when it is at least 50% submerged in the liquid.

      I recommend using thawed chicken.

      Please take care & have fun cooking

  2. I am having so much fun with my instant pot. I made the sausage and rice casserole, it turned out perfect. made my own creation with rice, hamburger small can of diced tomatoes, diced onion, garlic, celery, can of broth, taco seasoning, pressure cooked 10min, instant release, removed lid, folded all together added 2 scoops of sour cream and 3 hand fulls of shredded cheddar cheese combine all ingredients and let set and it is a perfect consistency

    pink beans come out perfect, I pressure cooked for 1hr let set until pressure was completely gone, perfect, not watery. did not soak beans, just sorted and rinsed. Use any meat you choose and your choice of seasoning . all done in one pot.

    1. Hi Joyce,

      Hope you had a wonderful New Year & Christmas 🙂
      Thank you so much for your comment and so happy to hear you are enjoying the Instant Pot!

      Happy New Year & please take care

  3. Ok so I opened my insta pot last night and went to make chicken and rice and the rice kept scorching to the bottom…what am I doing wrong?!? How do you make just plain white rice in the insta pot with some chicken?!?

  4. I make a combo of 1/2 basmati and 1/2 quoina. When I make it in my Zojirushi I give it one good rinse then fill it to white rice level and cook on white rice setting I can imagine doing this in my new (coming this week) instant pot 6qt ultra. Can you give me any instructions for this? We make 2 cups and then make grain bowls during the week with shrimp or chicken and veg on top. thanks. bean.

    1. Hi Bean,

      thank you for tour question 🙂

      You can also do that on the Instant Pot 6 quart Ultra.

      I recommend using the pressure cook button and set the time to 5 minutes + 10 minutes natural release.

      Please take care & have fun cooking

  5. I’m looking for a good recipe for ham fried rice for my instant pot,
    When would I add the egg and ham?
    I made you sweet and sour pork chops, it was wonderful,

  6. Amy & Jacky,

    Love your site and my new IP! Our rice favorite is 50% Jasmine Rice and 50% Brown Rice. I tried to combine both your recipes for Jasmine and Brown Rice with the proportions and wondering if you can provide some advice on how to soften the texture. For 15 minutes (high pressure) on the first test, and 17 (high pressure) minutes on the second test, both turned out mildly crunchy . Both times, the water content was perfect. I just need that brown rice a little more soft.

    115g white jasmine rice
    100g brown rice
    280ml water

    Thanks from a new IP owner from California!

    1. Hi Lisa,

      thank you so much for your kind words and question 🙂

      A little extra water will help soften the texture. Please give that a try!

      Please take care & have fun cooking

  7. Like to know if there is instant POT recipe for Amazake . Is it possible to keep in yogurt setting to make amazake. Please reply.

  8. I was skeptical about using the IP for jasmine rice, but it is better than using a rice cooker to my surprise! Which recipe should I use for short grain brown rice? Thank you!

    1. Hi Lena,

      Thank you so much for your feedback and question 🙂

      The brown rice recipe should work for short grain brown rice.

  9. I’ve got Rooster brand Brown Jasmine rice. In other words, it’s jasmine rice with the bran still on it. The cooking instructions on the package say 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water, simmer for 25 mins in a saucepan. In a microwave, same amounts of rice and water, high for 5 mins and medium for 12 mins. So, in an Instant Pot???

  10. Looking for suggestions on cooking a mix of brown and jasmine rice. Two seperate packages…assuming I have to cook seperately and then combine? Asking hoping there is a better way. Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Jule,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      You can use the cooking time for brown rice to cook both rice simultaneously. Rice can withstand overcooking quite a bit without losing the texture.

  11. Hi Amy and Jacky:

    I want to make red bean sweet soup. What is the bean and water ratio and the cooking time.
    Thank you and look forward to receiving your reply.

  12. Thanks for including how to include sticky rice. Any suggestion for how to cook the sticky rice with coconut milk?

    1. Hi Shirley,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      You can substitute the water with half chicken stock and half coconut milk.

  13. Have you tried Spanish rice? I am thinking of trying it tonight and following the same recipe I do on the stovetop, but with the one to one ratio for white rice. My only concern is adding the can of tomatoes that I usually put in, do you think that extra liquid would mess up the cooking and make the rice mushy?

    1. Hi Randi,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      I would recommend using a little less water as the can of tomatoes can mess up the ratio.

    2. I wanted to let you know it was PERFECT! Thank you for the suggestion! I will only make it in the IP from now on 🙂

  14. On a recent trip to Disney, I enjoyed a sweet, black rice served at their Nine Dragons Chinese restaurant in Epcot. Do you have a recipe for this type of delicious dish that could be made in the Instant Pot? I never had this before, but I sure want it again!

    1. Hi Roger,

      Sorry for the late reply as we are still in the middle of moving.

      We don’t have a recipe for black glutinous rice yet.

      Hopefully we will have one soon!

      Take care & have fun cooking

    1. Sorry for the delay in response as we are in the middle of moving!
      Thank you for your kind words Jasmine 🙂

      Hopefully we can tackle that one soon!

      Take care & have a great week
      Jacky

  15. Hello! I love to see and try your recipes! I was given a huge bag of enriched parboiled rice but I do not enjoy cooking rice on the stove since the instant pot is so much easier and less messy. Do you have a recipe for this type of rice? Thanks!

    1. Hi Laura,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      We haven’t tried enriched parboiled rice in the Instant Pot yet. If they are white rice, I would try following the Jasmine rice direction.

      Happy New Year to you and your family
      Jacky

  16. Hey I like to cook big pot rice to eat during the week but it is just long grain white rice, have you got anything for this? What the most I can cook in it and it come out fluffy. I have 6 qt pot

  17. Hi Jacky, thank you for sharing with us the results of your experiment with different kinds of rice.
    My husband usually wants to have fresh cooked rice daily and I came across a 1-cup pot in a pot recipe for long grain type

    Have you tried this? How would I adjust the mix and cooking time for brown rice using 1 cup pot-in-pot method?

    1. Hi Miles,

      thank you for your kind words 🙂

      We use the pot in pot method quite often to cook the rice along with a main dish (Like this recipe here).

      The Pot in Pot method will take a few minutes longer than cooking directly in the Instant Pot inner pot.

      You can follow this brown rice recipe and add 3 – 4 minutes longer to the cooking time.

      Take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky

    1. Thank you so much for your suggestions Chris 🙂

      The Jasmine rice cooking time/water ratio can be used for the Mediterranean dill rice

  18. We only eat black rice. It is so yummy and healthy. Please consider giving information on the best cooking time in the Instant Pot. Thanks!

  19. I would love to see a recipe for pilaf and Spanish rice using the long grain rice, these are our favorites news !!

  20. Have you tested rice cooking in the 8 qt INstant Pot? What is working for the majority of users (which have the 6 qt) is NOT working for me in the 8 qt! HELP!!!!

  21. Thanks for all the tips. I have one question. I buy brown jasmine as well as brown basmatiti rice, would I follow the instructions for the perfect brown rice for these or should I use the type of rice as the guide. I realize the cooking times might need to be played with, but which do you recommend as a starting point?

  22. For a number of reasons, I have preferred to use Uncle Ben’s Cnverted Rice. I have yet to see a tried and true recipe for it in th Instant Pot.
    Hve you used this rice? Just wondering what tips you miht have for me.
    Thanks so much I really enjoy your post, and learn somethiing from all of them!

    1. Hi Wendy,

      thank you for your question ?

      You will have to probably use the Pot in Pot method to cook them as they are parboiled. Please see this recipe for reference on how to use the Pot in Pot method.

  23. I recently got my Instant Pot. I want to make a rice blend that has stovetop instructions of bringing 1 cup blend with 1.5 cups water to a boil, then 15 minutes simmer and 5-10 minutes off the heat. Since it’s a mix of wild, white, brown, and red rice, what blend to water ratio should I use? How long of high pressure should I set? Should I also do the 10 minute pressure release? Thank you!

    1. Hi Mikell,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      Since brown rice, red rice, and wild rice shares similar cooking, I would go with the cooking time in the brown rice recipe.

      The water ratio will depend on the ratio of each type of the rice. I would say start with the ratio in brown rice recipe first and see how it goes.

      Take care & have fun cooking!

      Jacky
