I used basmati in this instant pot brown rice recipe, but you can use any brown rice you want, or any electric pressure cooker – just cook on high pressure!


  • 4 cups brown rice (I used brown basmati)
  • 5 cups water
  • 4 Tbsp butter (optional)
  • 2 tsp salt (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients in the Instant Pot and stir gently.
  2. Hit “pressure cook” or “manual” and make sure “high pressure” is selected.
  3. Set the time for 22 minutes.
  4. When the timer goes off, turn the pressure release valve to quickly release the pressure.
  5. Serve warm.
