Brown rice is one of the most frequently cooked dishes in my pressure cooker, but I didn’t even think about posting it for all of you! It seems so basic, right? Well, sorta, but every time I make it, at least, I have to refer to my notes for cook time and quantities, so I’m guessing you do too!

The recipe below is my go-to recipe for both short grain or long grain brown rice. If you’re adjusting the proportions, simply double or triple the rice and water amount, but keep the cook time the same. 

With this recipe, you’ll end up with a fluffy grain, no extra liquid, and a moist bite that pairs beautifully with any dish requiring rice on the side!

These are some of my favorite meals to serve brown rice alongside:

Pressure Cooker Cashew Chicken with Broccoli, Pressure Cooker Potato and Chickpea Curry, Pressure Cooker Orange Chicken Stir Fry, Pressure Cooker Portabello Black Bean Meatballs, and Pressure Cooker Chana Masala.
