Perfect (Instant Pot) Brown Rice Recipe


  • Brown rice
  • water
  • splash of olive oil


  1. Add equal parts brown rice and water to your Instant Pot. (Yes, that’s right….equal parts!!! Crazy, huh? But trust me.)
  2. Add a splash of oil, and give it a stir.
  3. Seal the Instant Pot, so the vent is closed.
  4. Cook on High pressure for 22 minutes. (It takes about 10 minutes for 2 cups of rice and 2 cups of water to reach pressure. FYI.)
  5. Allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes.
  6. Enjoy your amazingly perfect, no-fuss brown rice!

Note: If you make a larger batch, it will likely take longer to come to pressure. So your overall waiting time will be longer.

Enjoy! And be sure to check out our RECIPES PAGE for more great recipes!!!!
