Servings 2
Total Time 21 mins


  • 1 cup (200g) long grain brown rice
  • 1 cup (250ml) cold water


  • Pressure Cook Brown Rice: Place 1 cup brown rice (200g) and 1 cup cold water (250ml) in Instant Pot.
    With Venting Knob in Venting Position, close the lid, then turn Venting Knob to Sealing Position.
    Pressure cook at High Pressure for 15 minutes (See experiment for your own preference), and Natural Release for 5 minutes, then Quick Release (turn Venting Knob to Venting position). Open the lid carefully.
  • Serve: Fluff brown rice with a rice paddle or fork.
    *Pro Tip: If the rice is a bit wet, let it rest a bit for the moisture to escape before serving.


1) 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).
2) Leftovers Storage: Let leftovers cool completely before storing in the fridge.
