No Rinse Instant Pot Rice

Instant Pot Rice has become a staple in my home and for my blog. White Rice is probably my favorites to cook. If you have been reading for a while, you know I have quite a few recipes that include Instant Pot White Rice, I love dishes with chicken and rice, like my Instant Pot Soy Honey Sesame Chicken. Even cooking on the stove top sometimes becomes problematic, when cooking rice. It either comes out not completely done or even too done or mushy.

No Rinse Instant Pot Rice

I never rinse my Instant Pot Rice. I was brought up in a house where rice was a side dish for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. We never rinsed, and this didn’t change when I got my Instant Pot, and it still turns out perfect every single time.

It is a belief to some that not rinsing your rice causes it to come out gummy, but I have never had that problem. My belief is that Instant Pot White Rice will get gummy if you allow it to sit too long with the lid still on (under pressure and steam). I always quick release my rice and remove it from the pot right away.

Pressure cooker rice is so easy, even the kids can do it. Especially if you follow my recipe for No Rinse Instant Pot Rice. Rice can be extremely filling and is one thing that I can always get my picky eater to eat.

I like to cook it with chicken and sometimes we even have it just plain with sugar and butter. Make sure to check out the video below, and see how super easy it can be!

I had a taste for some Panda Express chicken but didn't have a taste for leaving the house or paying for it. So I decided to adapt a recipe of my own using their Mandarin Chicken as my inspiration. So today Instant Pot Copycat Panda Express Mandarin Chicken was born.

Probably a dumb question - Use long grain rice?

You left out the 2 TBs of butter. I assume you put that in before you stir?
