Ohio Casserole–an easy Instant Pot recipe with rice, cabbage, ground pork and seasonings. A family favorite!
Honestly, this was one of the best things I’ve made in a while! My kids, husband and a friend that was over LOVED it. No leftovers and the pot was scraped clean. It had tons of flavor and really is quite easy to make.
To make this recipe I took two “ohio” recipes and combined them into one and changed it into and Instant Pot recipe (recipe adapted from here and here). Like I said, this was really yummy and I was so happy with the results. Here are 3 reasons you should make this casserole:
- Quite easy to make: it’s relatively straightforward and doesn’t require extensive cooking skills. It’s a one-dish meal, which means less cleanup and an easier cooking process overall.
- Cabbage: The addition of cabbage brings a wonderful texture and introduces a healthy component to the dish.
- Good leftovers (if you have any!): This dish reheats well, making it perfect for leftovers. The flavors tend to meld even further, making it sometimes even more delicious the next day.
- Ground pork–I buy mine at Winco. You can also use ground chicken, turkey or beef.
- Onion–yellow or white
- Kosher salt
- Black pepper
- Poultry seasoning
- Smoked paprika
- Garlic powder
- Chicken broth–or water and Better than Bouillon
- Converted rice–you can also use long grain white rice, jasmine or basmati
- Cabbage–I use green cabbage
- Cream of chicken soup–or cream of mushroom, celery
Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. When display says HOT add in the pork and the onions. Break up the pork. Brown for about 5 minutes. If there is excess grease, drain it off.
Stir in the salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, paprika and garlic powder.
Pour in the broth and scrape bottom of pot so that nothing is sticking.
Sprinkle in the rice, don’t stir.
Add in the cabbage and finally the cream of chicken soup.
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 10 minutes and then move valve to venting.
Stir well. Serve and enjoy!
- Serve with a side of applesauce, fresh fruit or raw veggies and dip.
- I used my 6 quart Instant Pot*. You can also make this in an 8 quart pot. There is too much cabbage for it to fit in a 3 quart pot.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container* in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- What is converted/parboiled rice? Don’t confuse converted rice (or sometimes it is called parboiled rice) with pre-cooked or minute rice. Parboiled rice has been processed in its husk by soaking, steaming, and drying. As a result, all the nutrients from the husk are absorbed into the grain before it’s removed. The starch content alters in the process, making cooked parboiled rice less sticky than regular white rice. The rice kernels aren’t clumpy and glued together instead they are more separated. I found a bag of parboiled rice at Walmart next to the normal long grain white rice. Sometimes I buy it at Winco in the bulk section. I have also found it in the orange box (Ben’s brand) next to other rices.
- Other recipes you can make with cabbage are 3-ingredient sausage salsa rice and No Peek Casserole.
- If you don’t like to use cream of chicken soup you can make your own from scratch.
