Hi , everyone .
I'm Noreen and welcome to my kitchen .
And today we have a kitchen basic .
I'm gonna cover how to cook rice in your pressure cooker .
It's super easy .
And if you have one of these pieces of equipment , you should know how to do this because it will make your life so so easy .
Let's go see how this all comes together .
I'm going to show you how easy it is to make rice in your pressure cooker .
Now I have my power pressure cooker XL .
This is the six quart version .
I got this down and I love this one just as much as I love my other 10 quart , which is an elite , but I cannot live without pressure cookers .
I made a big pot of beans for dinner .
So we're going to have red beans and rice for supper tonight and I need to make the rice and the way to make that super fast is to do it in your pressure cooker .
It comes out perfect every time .
So if you are rice challenged , like my friend Heather used to be before she got one of these .
Um she is no longer rice challenged because she can cook her rice in the pressure cooker .
It's super , super simple .
You're going to do equal parts of rice to water .
So I have four cups of rice and four cups of cold water .
And for my own preference , I'm gonna add about a teaspoon or so of salt and about a tablespoon of oil .
That is the most crucial thing .
You cannot forget to put the oil .
When you are using a pressure cooker , the oil is going to save the starch from getting stuck up in your vent and or your Pitcock .
You know , there's that lovely word .
But um if the starch gets stuck up in there , it's going to force that starchy water up into the vent and into the Pitcock and it could actually hurt your machine over time and you don't want that because if you have one of these , then you have , um you've spent the money to get this and you , you want it to work .
So what you do put your lid on and then you wanna make sure that the arrows meet up on my model .
And this is how hard it is to cook rice in a pressure cooker because this is white rice .
You're just gonna hit the rice button .
It's gonna cook for six minutes .
Now , if you're gonna do brown rice , you wanna , you wanna refer to your manufacturer's instructions , you are gonna wanna cook brown rice for a little bit extra time .
So you may wanna give brown rice 10 minutes as opposed to six minutes .
But the other rules still apply equal parts water to rice .
No problem .
And always , always , always remember the oil .
Now , I like to um just make my rice plain .
I if you like to cook your rice with stock or chicken broth or something like that , that's great .
But I like to use leftover rice for any number of things .
Some of them not necessarily savory .
So I like to make sure that I cook my rice plain and then I can use it in a lot of different things .
Um After the , you know , we eat dinner and we have leftover rice .
Now , what I like to do with this much rice , I'll probably have eight cups of rice when all is said and done .
Then I will take whatever is left over .
I'll keep a little bit in the fridge to have with leftover beans , but I will freeze the rest while it is still hot so that I have rice to pull out of the , the freezer uh when I want it and it's ready to go .
And this is one of the greatest parts about freezer .
Banking is rice freezes beautifully .
And I always think of the movie Still Magnolias .
When I say that freezes beautifully for any of you who are fans of the movie , you get it .
And if you don't know what I'm talking about , go watch still magnolias because you know that's a nice evening with your , with your honey .
Snuggled up on the couch .
So we're gonna wait for this to come up to pressure .
We're gonna have it cooked for six minutes .
We're gonna wait for it to come down from pressure and then we're gonna come back and we're gonna show you what it looks like .
We have cooked the rice , it's gone up to pressure cooked for six minutes and come down off of pressure .
In reality , that's about 20 minutes .
So I'm gonna just take the cap off the cap the lid .
And then what you're gonna have is the most perfect cooked rice ever .
You see .
Look at and you just fluff it .
It's beautiful .
It's fluffy and each grain is separate .
Mm mm mm mm .
Look at that .
You can just fluff it .
Oh , it's hot .
I'm gonna go serve up a bowl just so you can see what it looks like .
And I'll be right back .
I just wanted to show you that it did not stick on the bottom and it's , it's loose and it's perfect and it's not sticking anywhere .
The rice is just perfectly cooked and it's beautifully fluffy and it's perfectly done .
And there you have it perfectly cooked white rice in your pressure cooker .
This is one of the best ways I think to cook rice .
Now , I cook rice on the stovetop all the time , but I'm off at home .
I'm in the kitchen because that's where my office space is and , you know , I can watch it but putting it in the pressure cooker and getting it done quick and easy , it really does have its benefits because you can set it and you can walk away from it and you can go do something else while your rice is cooking and then you come back to it 20 minutes later , a half an hour later , your rice is all done .
It's perfect and it's separate and it's nice and beautiful .
So that's it .
