Yes, you can definitely cook a variety of foods in an Instant Brands rice cooker. This versatile appliance is not just limited to cooking rice! Here's how:
Stews and Soups: You can make hearty stews and soups in your Instant Brands rice cooker. Simply use the sauté function to brown your meat or veggies, then add your broth and other ingredients, close the lid, and pressure cook on high for about 20-30 minutes.
Beans: Cooking beans from scratch can take hours on the stove top, but with an Instant Brands rice cooker, you can have perfectly cooked beans in under an hour. Just soak your beans overnight before cooking them in the Instant Pot with water or broth for about 30 minutes.
Porridge: Whether you prefer oatmeal or grits, a rice cooker can make perfectly creamy porridge every time. Use a 1:2 ratio of grains to liquid, set the timer for 20-25 minutes on the porridge setting, and enjoy!
Steamed Veggies: The Instant Pot comes with a steamer basket that allows you to easily steam vegetables while you cook something else at the same time.
Meat dishes: You can also use your Instant Pot to make tender meats like beef stew or pulled pork.
With so many possibilities, investing in an Instant Brands rice cooker is definitely worth it!
