Pressure cookers are great for preppers as it cooks things in a fraction of the time using less energy.
Today I show how to cook rice in a pressure cooker as a “I wonder if…”. It was just a guess if it would work.
It did, and not I am going to show that method.
I have heard of a pot in a pot method that supposedly works much better. After I do more research I will try it out later.
This is a faster method than my how to make sticky rice in a crock pot article.
From my experience here are some knowledge points for cooking rice this way.
- Do not fill the pressure cooker more than halfway full.
- Do not short change the standing time at the end of the process.
- ]1 cup rice
- 2 cups water, broth, or stock
- 1 tablespoon butter (optional, I sometimes use oil – or even omit it altogether)
- Add all of the ingredients to the pressure cooker.
- Securely fasten lid.
- Cook over medium-high heat until it is at high pressure. (it will vent)
- Reduce heat a little and continue cooking for 7 minutes.
- Remove from heat (I let it set until it cools, but you can place in sink and release pressure by running cold water over the lid if you are in a hurry)
- Let rice stand covered for 5 minutes. Check pressure before removing lid. If any pressure has built up, run under cold water again to release it.
