Instant Pot Fried Rice Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (456g) Jasmine rice rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce or gluten-free Tamari sauce
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup (128g) frozen peas and carrots mix
  • 1 cup (128g) sweet kernel corn
  • Sesame seeds for garnish
  • Diced green onions for garnish


Instant Pot Fried Rice Instructions:

  • To make your Fried Rice in Instant Pot, start by using a rice strainer to rinse the rice until it’s no longer cloudy. Once the water is clear let it drain for 10-15 mins.
  • Add the rice to the Instant Pot with 2 cups of water. Stir, close the lid and point the valve to Sealed.
  • Select Manual (or Pressure Cook) and cook on High Pressure for 3 mins.
  • When it’s done, allow for a 10 min Natural Pressure Release and then perform a Quick Pressure Release to release the remaining pressure.
  • Open the lid, fluff the rice with a fork and transfer it to a bowl. Without cleaning the insert, turn on Sauté mode, adjust to Medium setting and add in sesame oil.
  • Once the oil begins to sizzle, scrape the bottom of the insert with a wooden spoon and add in the onion. Sauté the onion in the oil and stir for 1-2 mins. Then add the peas, carrots and corn. Stir to combine it all together.
  • Add the butter and cook everything together for about another 2 mins. Push the veggies to one side of the pot and add the eggs to the other side. Stir the eggs constantly like you’re making scrambled eggs. Once the eggs begins to cook, mix them in with the veggies until fully cooked.
  • Cancel Sauté mode and set the Instant Pot heat setting to Keep Warm. Add the rice back to the insert with veggies.
  • Add the tamari soy sauce, rice vinegar, some sesame seeds and combine with the veggie-egg mixture. You’re almost done your Instant Pot Fried Rice.
  • Now, you can turn off the Instant Pot and serve the fried rice topped with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.



  • Cooking time listed does not include the time for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure or for the pressure to release.
  • Stir the eggs continuously when cooking so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Feel free to swap out the water for broth of your choice.
  • If you’re following a Gluten Free diet, use gluten free Tamari sauce instead of regular soy sauce.
  • You can use frozen or fresh vegetables in this recipe.
  • Do NOT skip rinsing the rice before cooking, as this removes some of the starch that makes rice sticky. And you don’t want super sticky rice for this Instant Pot Fried Rice recipe.
