Can You Cook Rice and Meat at The Same Time in Instant Pot

Yes, I cook rice and meat all the time in the Instant Pot. The key is to make sure your ground beef is fully cooked. Then add in remaining ingredients and then rice in at the end.

I barely stir the rice just enough to slightly incorporate it into the mix. Then start cooking with the pressure cooker lid on sealed.

Make sure to also quick-release, or you will end up with soggy rice, which you do not want.

How To Store Leftovers

If you have leftovers, simply store the rice and ground beef mixture in the fridge. Place in an airtight container for up to three days.

I have frozen this and it works well. It will soften the rice a bit but overall tastes pretty similar. Just warm up slowly in a skillet once the mixture has thawed overnight in the fridge.
