Instant Pot, Take One

Destiny

324 views

I'm making my first attempt to cook rice in my Instant Pot. I am completely incapable of making rice that isn't either mush or crunchy, no matter what I do. Here's what I have done so far:

1 c. wild rice

2 c. water

1tsp better than bullion veggie because it sounded good.

1tsp. butter

Put in pot and set to 25 min per https://www.platingsandpairings.com/cook-perfect-rice-instant-pot/.

Prayed Rufus' blessing on my endeavour.

Blogged about it on FJ. Updates to follow.

It feels like it should be delightful, so I look forward to the results. 

I'm going to try pork chops with wild rice in French onion soup mix in the pot later this week or next, assuming I don't fucking burn down my house with this attempt that is. I'm such a bad cook that it should be illegal.

Sounds yummy...for pork eaters.  How are you doing the chops?

However you do them sounds like a blog post for Feed Jinger.

I was going to brown them, then put them in the pot for the 25 min with the relevant rice and seasoning, and again pray to Rufus. Did I mention my incompetence?

Feed Jinger should be for competent cookery, not my pathetic attempts. 

For the record, I have Mac and cheese on the recipe list for myself that day. I HATE pork chops.

It is for everyone, and I know you don't want to discourage others from posting unless they are perfect, right?

@Destiny, I was terrified I was going to do something wrong and blow up my kitchen the first couple of times I used my Instant Pot. :scared-eek:

You perform magic with computers on a daily basis, so I am confident you'll be an Insta-pro in no time. 😸 

I love mine now, and I regret waiting so long to get one.

I should be able to cook. It’s just google and following directions, but I fuck it up every damn time.

You just successfully made rice so, you can no longer say that you fuck it up every time.

I believe in you, you can do this! :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Yay!  I had no doubt.

If you had to eat my cooking every day like I do? You would have! LOL.

      Call me cynical, but I have to wonder if being active military would be on the minus column for potential suitors of the Phillips daughters, because it's real life and not role play. 

      I'm not sure wether the Phillips can afford to be picky about suitors anymore. Sure, they'll want someone with the more or less same believes, but beyond that Beall is probably glad when there is one less eater on her bill.

      As a daily wearer of blue eyeshadow (and blue mascara, liner and lipstick) I say F trends, wear whatever makeup, clothes, hair, etc. makes YOU feel good about yourself. 

       

      Disclaimer: if being On Trend is what makes you feel good, rock every trend you can find.

       

      Secondary disclaimer: I also have blue hair, so I’m very defensive about color-related grooming and this isn’t directed at any one poster 💙

      I am starting to question Dericks intentions for marring Jilly more. He seems to be saying that he “settled” for her.

      OK, I found it! At 1:21:07 minutes, you will find JB & Michelle giving their talk. If you want to see David Waller have his turn alone, it's on their blog but this one of only JB & Michelle is not on there:

      JB begins by shading his dad and saying because his dad didn't have spiritual focus, they had a lot of problems in the family and financial hardship.

      If my husband (which I don't have) wrote something like that online about our marriage, I'd tell him that he can take up residence on the living room couch until he can get all his shit to his mom's house, and then he can relay anything he has to say to me to my divorce attorney. 

      I know Jill won't do that, but my god Derick is such a fucking turd.
