  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 2 cups water


  1. Plug your Instant Pot in. Turn it on and press MANUAL.

    Adjust the + button to 22 (for 22 minutes).

    Pour two cups rice and two cups water in the removable metal pot.

    Line up the arrows on the lid and turn the lid until it locks.

    Make sure the lid is closed and turn the vent lock to Sealed not Venting.

    Once it is heated up, it will start counting down from 22 minutes down to zero.

    When it is at zero on the countdown, wait 5 minutes to let the pressure naturally release.

    Make sure you have on an oven mitt to turn the vent lock to venting... this will shoot out HOT steam.

    Let the steam fully release (the floating valve will drop down when it’s released).

    Open the lid and your rice is ready!
