Instant Pot Shrimp Fried Rice

Here’s the easy recipe you can make in your Instant Pot or other pressure cooker that’s so much more than a pressure cooker.  My husband and son liked it so much they don’t ever want to eat take out shrimp fried rice again.  These are just the ingredients I chose to include.  Add your own choices and let us know how it turned out for you.

 

UPDATE:  Some people have found that the rice cycle was not enough time for their rice to cook.  You can do one of two things.  You can use the manual cycle on high pressure for 12 minutes, or you can double the rice cycle if you have problems.  it wasn’t a problem for me, but I’ve had 2 people tell me that the rice cycle just wasn’t enough for them.  Let me know in the comments what worked for you.  Thanks!

Recipe Notes

After the shrimp fried rice is cooked, you can let the pot depressurize itself (10-15 minutes) or you can release the pressure by pushing the knob to release.  I like to let it depressurize to let that rice settle a little, but both methods work.
