How To Make InstaPot Rice Recipe (Beef Plov Recipe)

Hey everyone! Its Natasha Get ready to get, excited we’re sharing a healthier, juicier,
flavor-packed rice pilaf, called plov. It’s an instant pot recipe so it’s quick
and easy and the beef is melt-in-your-mouth tender. Once you start
the cooking, this recipe goes fast so I love to prep all of my ingredients ahead.
Peal and thickly julienne three large carrots. Now peel and dice one large
onion and it may seem like a lot of onion but seriously it disappears into
the rice once it’s cooked and adds so much flavor! Now you’ll need one whole
unpeeled head of garlic, cut it in half crosswise. I know it’s a strange way to
cut garlic but you’ll see, it’s genius! I love that the instant pot has a saute
setting which means everything happens in one pot. To start cooking on high heat,
push sautee twice. Pour in four Tbsp of olive oil and when the
oil is hot add one pound of beef, cut into bite-size pieces.
Saute, stirring occasionally for about five minutes or until lightly browned
then add four Tbsp of butter and your chopped onion. Stir and saute for
about three minutes or until the onions are softened. Now stir in your julienned
carrots then add all of your seasoning. You’ll need one Tbsp of salt half
a tsp of black pepper half a tsp of ground cumin 1/2 a tsp
of paprika and half a tsp of ground coriander. Stir that together and saute another
five minutes or until the carrots are softened. Meanwhile rinse and drain your
rice and once the carrots are softened spread the rice evenly over the top, do
not stir the rice in. Push your garlic cloves, cut side down into the rice. Now
pour in 3 cups of very warm or hot water and I try to pour over the garlic cloves
so I don’t disturb the rice. Use the back of a wooden spatula to poke holes all
the way to the bottom of the pot, this helps to disperse flavor. While it’s
cooking, push the multigrain setting or cook on manual high pressure for 30
minutes and the instant pot does the rest. While you use this time to do
important life activities. Once the 30 minutes are up, let it rest and naturally
depressurize for 10 minutes before switching to the venting position to
release the steam. Make sure the steam is fully released and the float valve is
loaded down before opening the pot. Finally, although it really doesn’t take
very long in the instant pot, but we’re gonna do the taste test. And it smells so good in my kitchen! This
is seriously the easiest way to make plov. The meat is just like fall apart
tender and delicious and most people will probably not even guess that that’s
brown rice, it’s just cooked to perfection. Delicious! So I’m gonna take
out the garlic and you can keep it in there. The cloves get so soft they’re
literally like melting in your mouth so for folks who love garlic leave them in
there, just squeeze out the garlic cloves and serve the plov with them in and then
the whole pot is infused with wonderful garlic flavor. Good! I cannot wait cuz I
know how good this tastes! Are you guys as excited as I am right now?! YUM! Take a
look at this. Give it a quick stir. The rice is cooked perfectly, it’s not mushy
because it’s brown rice. mmm Time for the taste test. Oh my goodness!
It’s so moist, loaded with flavor! Okay, and before I serve, I like to give
it a sprinkle of fresh parsley because it makes it beautiful, adds a little pop
of flavor and color. All right, here we go… get a little meat on every bite because –
YUM! hmm… This has so much flavor, absolutely
delicious. That meat just like falls apart in your
mouth – In 30 minutes. Can you guys even believe that? So good, and brown rice
takes like an hour to cook normally so this is super fast, this is a healthier
way to make plov because brown rice is healthier than white rice and it has
a little bit of nuttiness to it. All the seasonings work together so beautifully.
Mmm… It’s a party in your mouth. If you enjoyed this recipe, give me a great big

    Finally cooking but I got the burn notice like I do with most things. Just a newbie but I followed exactly. I have the ultra 6qt. Idk what’s the problem. I read the pot may be too hot from sautéing….I had to cancel, wait, start again, stop it again then it finally pressurized. Hopefully it was worth the wait
