Instant Pot Recipe: Sausage with Rice | Gluten Free
Welcome to One Pot Meals with Kait. That’s me!
Today we are going to make sausage and rice.
This dish is perfect for when you have left overs.
So if you have leftover chicken, steak, pork, anything
just toss it in the Instant Pot,
add some rice, set it to 10 minutes
and you have a really hearty meal in no time.
Let’s get started.
I’m going to set the Instant Pot to sauté.
And while that is heating up
I’m going to add about a tablespoon of olive oil.
I have two pork sausages
that I’m going to take out of the casing
and put into the pot.
I’m putting in one sausage per person.
I’m going to break up the sausage and
cook this all the way through.
While the sausage is browning,
I’m going to cut up half a sweet onion.
I really like having the sauté feature in the Instant Pot.
And I’ve mentioned this in previous videos,
the one thing I really miss in a slow cooker
is the ability to brown meat.
It’s nice to be able to set this to sauté
and brown the sausage.
The sausage is nice and browned.
I’m going to drop in half a sweet onion.
I’m going to cook the onion in here
until it’s just translucent.
And don’t worry about the brown fits at the bottom.
We will deglaze this only when we add some water
and that will add extra flavor to this dish.
While those onions are sautéing
I’m going to cut up one zucchini.
If you don’t have zucchini, you can skip this
or if you have peppers, a red or orange pepper,
put that in there.
I’m going to dice the zucchini and add it in.
I’ve got the onions and zucchini in here.
Now it’s time to season.
Again I’m using the Italian herb blend
from The Spice House. I really like this.
I’m going to give it a generous shake.
And this blend has oregano, basil, thyme,
marjoram and rosemary.
A little bit of black pepper.
Sprinkle of salt.
And one of my favorite ingredients,
dried red chillies.
Skip the red peppers if you don’t want
any heat in this dish.
The onion is nice and translucent.
Then add about half a cup of water to deglaze this.
Now just scrape all the good brown bits
off the bottom of the pot.
I’m going to to turn the sauté off.
The final ingredient is the jasmine rice.
The way I measure is a quarter cup dry rice per person
and you can use brown rice or wild rice.
The rice is well incorporated.
The ratio I like to use when cooking rice in the
Instant Pot is usually one to one.
especially if i’m using vegetables and onions.
They release a lot of juice.
So if iI’m using half a cup of rice
I’ll use half a cup of water.
Now all we have to do is put the lid on.
Set manual cook to 10 minutes.
And that’s it.
Once this comes to pressure,
it will be done in 10 minutes
and we’ll have a really hearty meal to enjoy.
Now there is a rice setting on the Instant Pot.
I haven’t used it yet.
I find that 10 minutes on manual
is perfect for cooking rice.
Whether it’s half a cup or cup.
I’m going to get the kitchen cleaned up.
See you in a little bit.
Okay. Hit the cancel button.
And set this to venting.
If you are cooking in an RV,
make sure you have your vent on
so that it sucks out all the moisture.
Mmm. Smells really good.
You can get all the flavors from that Italian
seasoning blend coming out of the vent.
The pressure is released. Moment of truth.
Oh, that smells good.
The rice is nice and plump.
Everything is cooked through.
You want to taste this first?
I’ll let Joe be the taste tester.
This is delicious. The sausage really came through.
I love this dish.
Especially with everything she’s put in here.
I think I’m going to throw some hot sauce on top of it.
To kind of tie everything together.
Babe. Good job!
Let me double check this.
That’s really good.
You get the nice bite from the sausage.
A little heat from the red peppers
the onions and zucchini really comes through.
I really hope you get this dish a try
