This Instant Pot Brown Fried Rice is a healthier version of Instant Pot Chinese Fried Rice because it uses brown rice. The recipe is a great way to add flavor to plain brown rice with minimal effort. To make the recipe non-vegetarian, stir in ham, rotisserie chicken and/or a fried egg to the cooked rice.
Open the lid and add in the thawed frozen vegetables.
Gently stir the fried rice and vegetables until combined.
Close the lid again and let the vegetables and rice rest in the residual heat for about 5 minutes. If the lid has trouble closing, move the steam release handle to the venting position (or in the case of the Ultra model, push down on the steam release button).
Open the lid and transfer rice to a serving bowl..
Optional: scramble two eggs in a frying pan and stir into the rice.
Garnish with green onions and cilantro (optional).
Prep time does not include steps that are already accounted for in the ingredient list, e.g. minced garlic, chopped onions, etc.
