Multigrain Fried Rice 300x199 Multi Grain or Brown Fried RiceSubmitted by Robin R.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups TOTAL of the following types of rice:
  • Brown rice OR multi-grain rice
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 cup of diced ham, chicken, or pork
  • 1/4 cup of sliced scallions
  • 1 cup grated or matchstick carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive oil or butter
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to Instant Pot
  2. Set pot to Multi-Grain setting
  3. When cooking cycle is complete, fluff rice and serve

Options: You may also add 1 cup of frozen peas and/or mushrooms at the end of the cooking cycle–if you add them at the beginning they will turn out mushy

NOTE: This rice is going to be a much drier/less sticky rice than most of the recipes that are posted on the website or the ones in the recipe book. It is more like what we are used to here, in our Chinese restaurants.

    Help….for the Fried Rice recipe above no time is given and on multi grain it comes up 40 minutes at normal high pressure….is this correct?

    Much more detail on times should be given in these recipes.

    Yes Strom, the directions suggest using the pre-set button without any time adjustment.

    You may choose to use a shorter cooking time if you are concerned. Note that this is for multi-grain or brown rice which is longer cooking than white or parboiled types.

    Yep, I followed it for Jasmine type and it took 40 minutes AFTER it started cooking. The videoes make it seem quick but it wasn’t. It came out ok but not as crispy as Chinese restaurant fried rice. I think the instructions are incomplete and a bit misleading.

    Help, I think I need more info. Once I choose the multi-grain setting, won’t it want me to choose “normal” “less” or “more” which determines the cooking time. How do I know how long to set it for? If I double the rice, do I double the time?

    No need to double the time when pressure cooking larger amounts of food. You may find this article helpful on this point: http://www.hippressurecooking.com/how-to-double-a-pressure-cooker-recipe/

    I’m sorry I didn’t see this question sooner.
    The peas and/or mushrooms are added after performing the quick release and the heat from the cooked rice will warm them without making them too soft, I prefer my mushrooms and peas firm, but warm.
    If you want them cooked longer, you may want to turn the pot to ‘warm’ and stir in the peas and mushrooms and warm until they are the way you like them.
    I hope this helps.
