Instant Pot Brown Jasmine Rice is easy to make and goes perfectly with several different dinner recipes. It takes roughly 35 minutes to cook in the Instant Pot and it comes out perfect every time!
If you’re looking for a quicker option, then try making White Jasmine Rice instead.
Cooking rice is probably the easiest thing you can make in your instant pot. There’s no babysitting or watching over a pot like you would cooking rice on the stove. With the instant pot you simply add the rice and your liquid, set the time and that’s it! I can turn it on while cooking the rest of my food and it's ready at the same time as everything else.

How To Cook Brown Rice In The Instant Pot
Full instructions are included in the recipe card below, but here’s a quick overview:
Step One: Measure your rice and rinse it well in a fine mesh strainer under cool water. Add rinsed rice to the Instant Pot.
Step Two: Pour in water or broth and a pinch of salt. Gently stir and make sure all of the rice is pressed completely under the water.
Step Three: Close the lid, turn the pressure valve to sealing and pressure cook for 24 minutes on high pressure. *(note: it will take the instant pot approximately 8-10 minutes to reach pressure and start cooking).
Step Four: After the cook time has ended, allow the instant pot to do a 10 minute natural pressure release, then quick release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove the lid and fluff with a fork. Enjoy!
What Instant Pot Do You Need?
To cook rice you can use any Instant Pot. I use the Instant Pot Duo 6 quart and I love it! The 6 quart is the perfect size for making rice along with several other meals for a family of 4-6. If you have a larger family, then you may want to invest in a 8 quart Instant Pot.
Rinse your rice. Rinse your rice under cool water in a fine mesh strainer for up to a minute or until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch from the rice.
For extra flavor use broth instead of water. Most of the time I use water when cooking white rice, but I love using chicken broth for brown rice. Sometimes I will do half water and half broth. It's an easy substitute and works perfectly if you are serving the rice with roasted chicken or baked fish. Vegetable broth would work too!
