Pressure cookers are great for preppers as it cooks things in a fraction of the time using less energy.

Today I show how to cook rice in a pressure cooker as a “I wonder if…”.  It was just a guess if it would work.

It did, and not I am going to show that method.

I have heard of a pot in a pot method that supposedly works much better.  After I do more research I will try it out later.

This is a faster method than my how to make sticky rice in a crock pot article.

From my experience here are some knowledge points for cooking rice this way.

  • Do not fill the pressure cooker more than halfway full.
  • Do not short change the standing time at the end of the process.


  • ]1 cup rice
  • 2 cups water, broth, or stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional, I sometimes use oil – or even omit it altogether)


  • Add all of the ingredients to the pressure cooker.
  • Securely fasten lid.
  • Cook over medium-high heat until it is at high pressure. (it will vent)
  • Reduce heat a little and continue cooking for 7 minutes.
  • Remove from heat (I let it set until it cools, but you can place in sink and release pressure by running cold water over the lid if you are in a hurry)
  • Let rice stand covered for 5 minutes. Check pressure before removing lid. If any pressure has built up, run under cold water again to release it.
