What is Brown Rice?
Brown rice’s literal meaning in Chinese (糙米) is “rough rice”. It’s an unpolished whole grain rice – the bran, germ, and aleurone layer are not removed like the regular polished white rice we eat. Brown rice is the same grain as white rice, but it’s more nutritious with more nutrients and high in fiber.
Normally it takes almost an hour of simmering to make a pot of brown rice on stove top, but it’s super easy to make in the pressure cooker using half the cooking time! 😀

1 cup (200g) long grain brown rice
1 cup (250 ml) water
Pressure Cook the Brown Rice: Place 1 standard glass measuring cup of brown rice (200 g) and 1 cup of water (250 ml) into the pressure cooker. Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure using Manual/Pressure Cook button for 15 minutes (Please see tips for your own preference). Turn off the heat and allow a 5 minutes rest time and then do a Quick Release by turning the venting knob to the venting position. Open the lid carefully.
Serve: Fluff with a fork. If the rice is a bit wet, let it rest a bit for the moisture to escape before serving.
Rinsing rice: If you rinse the rice before cooking, be sure to drain well and ensure the water-to-rice ratio is accurate. (Roughly reduce 3 tablespoons from the 1 cup of water)
Leftovers Storage: Let leftovers cool completely before storing in the fridge.
