If you love fried rice like we do you will love this pressure cooker fried rice made in just a few minutes in your Instant Pot. Of course there are a variety of ways to make fried rice, and so many things you can add into it so if there’s an ingredient you think is a must please by all means add that too but here is a great basic fried rice recipe you can make for dinner some night and is definitely on the top of list when it comes to our favorite Instant Pot recipes here on our site.
Here’s what we added into our Instant Pot fried rice recipe.
Egg is a must for us but could be omitted if you have an allergy. Mixed vegetables work well since they are already diced for you and can be thrown in for a quick dinner. Rice is a given.
I like this one for many reasons but I love simple pressure cooker recipes where I do not have to precook the rice beforehand.
In my opinion it also falls into the cheap Instant Pot recipes I make often because it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and almost all of them I have at home.
The only thing I sometimes have to grab at the store are the frozen veggies. Now that we started buying meat in bulk and have a large freezer. So, I have been keeping that on hand too. Especially when it is chilly outside and the last thing you want to do is head out to the store. Now you can whip this together and have a delicious meal in no time at all.
