  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


When you don’t have the time to make fried rice in a wok try this dump everything into the Instant Pot and walk away version! It super simple and makes a great side dish (or main dish). 


  • 1 1/4 cups chicken or beef broth
  • 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1 cup cubed ham
  • 23 cups frozen vegetables of your choice
  • 2 eggs (optional)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Green onion, for garnish


  1. Dump the broth, soy sauce, vinegar, rice, garlic powder, pepper, ham and vegetables into the pot in that order and don’t stir.  
  2. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 3 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 5-10 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid.
  3. If you’d like scrambled egg in your rice then cook scrambled eggs on the stove and stir them into the pot. 
  4. Stir in the sesame oil.
  5. Serve and enjoy topped with diced green onions
