Instant Pot Pork Fried Rice Ingredients:

Prepare Instant Pot. Press the Saute setting. Add 1 Tablespoon coconut oil to the bottom of the pot. Add a small onion and cook for 2 minutes.

Prepare the Pork: Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Add pork chops to oil and onion. Allow pork chops to cook for 3 minutes on each side. Select Cancel. Remove pork and onion from Instant Pot to a small bowl.

Prepare rice: Add the water to the Instant Pot and deglaze the pan by scraping the bottom of the pan to remove any browned pieces. Add uncooked rice to water.

Lock lid and Set Time. Lock the lid in place and set the valve to the “sealing” position — Press Rice setting for the cooking time.

Natural Pressure Release. Once time beeps, allow Natural Release for 10 minutes.

Add Egg. In a small bowl, use a whisk to scramble eggs. Stir rice, forming a hole in the center where you can see the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add remaining oil to the hole’s center. Pour scrambled egg into the oil and stir quickly.

Finish Rice: Stir in Soy Sauce to the rice mixture, add peas and carrots to rice, and rest for 5 minutes to heat the peas and carrots. Serve garnished with green onions and sesame seeds.

Store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Add-Ins:

Creativity shines in this rice dish.

You can add water chestnuts, pork belly, bean sprouts, garlic powder, leftover chicken, rotisserie chicken, bell peppers, oyster sauce. Make it the best-fried rice to your preference.

Tips for Sticky Rice:

This easy instant pot recipe can be adapted if you’re looking for sticky rice like what’s served in a Chinese restaurant.

Look for rice packages that say “glutinous” or “sweet,” such as Three Ladies. Other types of rice (like jasmine rice) will not yield sticky rice.

From here, you will need to soak the rice for at least four hours in water before starting the recipe.

To cook, place 1 cup water in the bottom of the Instant pot, and then place rice in a fine-mesh sieve above the water (it cannot touch the water).

Cook for 12 minutes on high pressure.

Allow natural release for 12 minutes.

Serve within 15minutes of cooking time ending.
