  • Rinse the brown rice to remove excess starch (this will help keep it from sticking together).
  • Pour water (or chicken or vegetable broth) into the pot of your Instant Pot.
  • Add brown rice to the Instant Pot.
  • Lock lid in place and turn valve to SEALING. Set to HIGH pressure for 20 minutes.
  • Once the timer goes off press CANCEL and let it do a 10 minute natural release before turning valve to VENTING to release remaining pressure.
  • Remove lid, fluff with a fork, and serve.
