  • Instant Pot


  • cups brown rice
  • cups plain water


  • Add rice to a fine-meshed strainer.  Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.
  • Add brown rice and water into the pot. Stir to combine. Secure the lid. Cook on Manual at High Pressure for 15 minutes, and natural release for 10 minutes.
  • Open the lid. Make sure that the Instant Pot is completely off. Letting your IP in a "Warm" mode will cause the rice to turn hard. Fluff the rice using a fork and let it rest for about 5-10 minutes to reduce the wetness of the rice.


How to store the leftover rice: First, let the rice cool down at room temperature but no longer than 2 hours. Transfer the leftover to an airtight container. Properly stored, it lasts about 5-7 days in the fridge or up to a month in the freezer.
