I love rice recipes & rice dishes. Well, actually, I LOVE Instant Pot rice recipes! They are some of the easiest, fastest & most delicious pressure cooker recipes, including this Easy Jambalaya.
With Instant Pot rice recipes, I love to add a TON of flavor.
Don’t get intimidated… adding a ton of flavor doesn’t mean you have to have magical powers, just be creative with your ingredients and don’t be stingy with those seasonings! If a rice recipe is going to be my MEAL, I don’t want just a bowl of mostly plain rice. I want meat and veggies and FLAVOR in every bite.
Chinese Fried Rice from a local takeout place usually disappoints me. Why? Because the ratio of rice to other ingredients is far too big. I want meat, I want veggies, I want flavor, not just a mouthful of rice. My Instant Pot Chicken Fried Rice is a big hit in my house!
My husband loves smoked sausage and cajun spice. So, when I had these ingredients on hand recently and needed to get a good dinner on the table ASAP, I decided to go for an easy (and SUPER FAST) Instant Pot Jambalaya.
Good news, it was a HIT! Better news, it took just a few minutes of prep and I cooked everything in one pot – the Instant Pot! Hip Hip HOORAY for only one dirty pot! Gotta love a good Instant Pot one pot meal!
