You have asked time and time again for Tom to make a video on how he makes brown rice in the Instant Pot and it is finally done! This is his first solo cooking video and he did an outstanding job. Tom really does make the best brown rice. He has perfected his technique and it comes out perfect every time. We hope you will try his method and enjoy the rice as much as we do.
Simple and easy method to make perfect brown rice in the Instant Pot every time. The wood rice paddle comes from Holland Bowl Mill and can be purchased on line. Tom prefers the wood one over the plastic one that comes with a pressure cooker. The wood one is larger and easier to use.
Perfect Granular Brown Rice in the Instant Pot
- 6 QT Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker
- 8 cups brown rice
- 8 cups water
- Put brown rice and water in the SS liner of an electric pressure cooker. Take notice of the water level with the measurement markings inside the pressure cooker liner. In a 6 qt liner it should come to the 3 liter mark.
- Take the SS liner to the sink and rinse the rice with more water, pouring and rinsing again. Stir the rice with a spatula or large spoon while rinsing to free up the rice dust and husks that need to be rinsed away. Lastly, refill with fresh water up to the level you noted earlier, a 6 qt liner should equal the 3 liter mark.
- Put the lid on the pressure cooker. Select High Pressure and set for 15 minutes.
- Let it go to natural pressure release for 20 minutes and then finish with manual release.
- Divide into freezer safe containers. May be frozen for up to 3 months.
- The rice becomes even more granular when thawed after being frozen.

Awesome presentation Tom. I love the visuals for instructions. Is it possible to use the same ration using just half the quantity? Thank you
HI Pam, We haven’t tried making it with the recipe cut in half but try it and see how it turns out – it should be ok.
How are you heating up the frozen rice? It is already cooked so are you microwaving it or just letting it thaw?
We do use a microwave oven. Or sometimes it’s going into a recipe, or in a skillet to be heated up with veggies.
