Rice is one of those things that I have started making all the time! It really does go with just about everything and it’s a nice starch to pull bread and potatoes out of the lineup every time you make it.

I started making basic white rice in a rice cooker before I started learning how to make it on the stovetop. These days I’ve been experimenting with cooking rice with a pressure cooker. I find that it requires a lot less active cooking to do it in a pressure cooker than in a stove top sauce pan and the rice can be much more complex than it comes out in a standard rice cooker.

Are you looking to make some good rice in the pressure cooker?

Well then look no further.

I’ve compiled 38 of the best rice recipes for the pressure cooker that are super easy to make.

Here we go!
