Instant Pot, Take One

Destiny

419 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.

      In keeping with the discussion in the JRod thread, I did find something else to like about this film -- the wood boxes in the first scene:

      and the pottery in a scene near the end (not my exact style, but nice):

      But then, there's this:

      And this:

      In which Doug admires the fact that Kelly's hair went from jet black with the dye the Lenape had put on it for 10 years, to gleaming blonde (and a whole other texture!) in only one bath. Oddly, her roots are still somewhat darker.

      The Lord works in mysterious ways.

      I like the spelling "wiennie." Makes them sound more elegant somehow, like something from Old Vienna, to be enjoyed with a fine wine.

      Thomas has now graduated and is working in a grocery store.  A perfectly good job if he wants to work his way up to management, and perhaps he never liked academics or wanted to go to college

      But I hope Tom does let all the children go to the Christian school in town (it probably also uses ACE) or even public school in time.

      Thomas has actually not graduated.  He was set to start 12th grade this fall (they always start late - the first Thursday after the start of fall).  He works part time at the store around his schooling. She said sometimes he does his school in the afternoon/evening if he works during the day.

      I also hope the kids go to the Christian school in town. While ACE isn't a great curriculum, just going to a school would be a big change so using the same curriculum would at least give them some feeling of "ok, I got this." and continuity of their life before Andrea died.

      @unsafetydancer is the politician in your country who is pushing for the retirement age raise, someone who is taken seriously? Or is he considered a fringe politician?
