Savory Instant Pot butter rice is made with beef broth, French Onion soup, and butter for a rich and delicious easy side dish that cooks in just 3 minutes. Serve it with your favorite main dish and a side of fresh veggies for an easy weeknight dinner.
Once you discover just how easy it is to make jasmine rice in your Instant Pot, a whole variety of easy rice side dishes opens up to you.
As much as I love how plain white rice soaks up saucy dishes, sometimes you need a rice side dish that has enough flavor to stand by itself.
This rich, beefy butter rice is one of my favorite things to cook to go with a lighter protein like chicken, pork tenderloin, or salmon.
The best part? You dump all the ingredients into your Instant Pot and the rice cooks itself in three minutes!
The list of ingredients for sticky butter rice is very simple:
- Jasmine (or long grain white) rice
- Beef broth
- Condensed French Onion soup
Be sure to see the recipe card for quantities.
This recipe is so ridiculously easy, you'll have it memorized in no time.
Step 1: Add the Rice & Soup
Measure your dry white rice directly into the Instant Pot.
Pour the entire can of condensed French Onion soup over the rice.
Step 2: Add Broth & Butter
I use the same measuring cup that I used to measure the rice to measure the beef broth.
Pour the broth over the rice. Stir the rice, soup, and broth all together so that the rice is completely coated in liquid and nothing dry is touching the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Then cut the butter into smaller cubes and scatter them over the surface of the broth.
Step 3: Cook At High Pressure For 3 Minutes
Put the lid on the Instant Pot, seal it, and cook on HIGH pressure for 3 minutes.
We use the "Pressure Cook" button on the bottom right corner of the panel but there are differences in the buttons on different machines. Just choose the program that lets you set the time.
Step 4: Quick Release Pressure
When the Instant Pot timer bell goes off, you can quick release the lid and serve the rice immediately if you want.
Often, the rice cooks so fast that the rest of our dinner isn't finished yet. I just let the Instant Pot move into "Keep Warm" mode until I'm ready to serve.
Step 6: Fluff and Serve
You'll notice that all the onions from the French Onion soup will have floated to the top of the rice as it cooked.
I always fluff up the rice with a fork or cooking spoon before serving and mix the onions back throughout the rice as I go.
The sticky butter rice will be very rich and almost saucy.
This rice side dish would go well with any lighter protein. Some of our favorites include salmon, chicken tenderloins, and shrimp.
