Instant Pot Brown Rice
If you are not familiar with brown rice, it’s whole grain rice, with the outer part removed. The difference between brown rice and white rice is that the white rice already has the hull removed.
Since the hull is left on the brown rice, it takes a longer time for the brown rice to be cooked.

Here Are Some Common Questions Asked About Making Instant Pot Brown Rice
WATER TO RICE RATIO
The most important thing about making any rice dish in the Instant Pot is the water to rice ratio. For 2 cups of rice, you need 2 cups of brown rice, but with 2 1/2 cups of water.
So if you want to double the recipe, you increase the brown rice to 4 cups and the water to 5 cups.
If you want to switch out the water for chicken, beef, or vegetable broth, you will keep the same ratios.
CAN YOU MEAL PREP RICE
It is tough to make the rice ahead of time, but you really do not need to with the Instant Pot. One time-saver tip I use is to measure out the ingredients, pour the rice into the Instant Pot bowl, and then measure out the water. I leave the measured water next to the Instant Pot, and then when I’m ready to cook the brown rice in the Instant Pot. I add the water and set the time.
