Pressure Cooker, Instant Pot, Greek Lemon Rice


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups white long grain rice
  • 14.5 ounces chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Serve with diced parsley and lemon zest


  1. Start by adding your butter into the Instant Pot.

  2. Press the saute button.

  3. Once the butter starts to melt, add the rice. The butter will provide a nice nutty aroma to the kitchen. 

  4. Continue to saute the rice, until the butter is completely melted and the rice has been coated. It will have a nice shiny appearance.

  5. Mix in the chicken broth (or stock), water, lemon juice, and salt. 

  6. Mix well.

  7. Add your lid to the Instant POt, making sure that the vent is in a sealing position. 

  8. Set the manual high pressure for 4 minutes.

  9. Let the pressure naturally decrease, before you remove your lid. (Remember the lid should easily come off, never force a lid off any Pressure cooker or instant pot)

  10. Transfer the rice to a serving dish.

  11. For a better presentation, I added some lemon slices.

  12. Then added some diced parsley.

  13. Plate, serve and enjoy!
