Even though the Instant Pot has a “Rice” function, it is not suitable for brown rice as it cooks at a lower temperature setting. I use these timings above and the normal high pressure setting to cook perfect Brown Rice every time.

  • 8 servings
  • 10 mins
  • 26 mins
  • 36 mins


  • 2 cups brown rice, uncooked
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • salt
  • butter



  • Combine the water, rice, salt, and butter in the instant pot.
  • Set to pressure cook on high pressure for 26 minutes.
  • When it is done, let the pressure cooker come to a natural release.
