Large Family Cook With Me | + How to Make Instant Pot Brown Rice!

– Hey guys, so it is a busy
Tuesday afternoon at our house. We have cut our home day
short, we have to get back out the door for a late
afternoon and evening full of archery. Five of the kids have now
started archery and they get to actually use those
compound bows tonight. So it’s a big, exciting afternoon. Anyway this mean we have
to have dinner on this day of the week a lot earlier than normal. A lot of times we won’t have
dinner until 5:30 or 6:30 or 7:30, so we’re having dinner today, hopefully by 3:30, 3:45ish, maybe 4. So I’ve gotta start
pullin’ things together. We’re gonna have some read aloud time while dinner is cooking. The main thing I’m gonna
show you in today’s vlog is how I’ve been doing,
whoo-hoo, having dishes done too, how I’ve been doing brown
rice in the instant pot. So I’m gonna do that. What else is going on for
dinner, I’m gonna do some corn on the cob. And then I’ve got a video up with these, and we have the recipe over
on On my last freezer
cooking day, I did these parmesan turkey burgers. So we are gonna cook these
on a sheet pan in the oven. It’s just a real easy
way to do a whole lot of burgers at one time. So gonna do those and
show you how to get that rice going in the IP. For the burgers, again this
is in the recipe over there, but I’m just gonna preheat my oven to 350. I’ll show you these in action
too because some of you have asked me to see some
of my freezer recipes actually being cooked, so
the turkey burgers I’m just cooking from frozen. And just to get another
glimpse on how we do some quick afternoon as needed fill in chores. Gabriel is taking his
turn doing the dishes, and then over here, while
we are doing a few things, Liam is reading to Daniel,
cause Daniel, you’re not taking a nap, are ya? You big boy, you stayin’ up? Daniel likes to tell me often
that he’s not going to bed. Naomi’s getting her
sewing stuff while we do a little bit of reading. Gabriel’s taking turn with dishes. I’m spraying my pan there for those frozen parmesan turkey burgers. I just heard UPS pull up
so that’s always exciting. I ordered, listen to this,
I ordered a new 14 quart electric pressure cooker,
and cause I wanted a second one, but I wanted to use
a different brand besides Instant Pot cause a lot
of you, not everyone has Instant Pots, so it’s just
gonna be, it’s another brand pressure cooker. But it’s one that my friend
Ashley, she’s a home school mom of nine kiddos. It’s the same size and model that she uses in addition to her Instant Pot. And I also ordered an Air
Fryer, so be on the look out. I’m gonna do unboxings for those and share how we are usin’ em. So here’s our turkey burgers
and not a lot of space between ’em but I don’t
wanna get a second pan dirty and so my husband did
hamburgers last night and about three-quarters of the way
through he took ’em out and flipped them and
that’s what I’m planning to do with these turkey burgers as well. So we’ve got the oven, it’s
actually still preheating to 350. I’m gonna go ahead and put
these turkey burgers in and then I’m gonna set the
timer for about 35 minutes because I will flip them
and check them at that time. (water running) So I usually rinse my rice. I’ve had some viewers
tell me that rice can get, I don’t know, arsenic on
it and different things in the packaging so it’s
always a good idea to rinse it. So since I’ve read those comments, I now am a faithful rice rinser. So this is 32 ounces of
rice that is four cups. I’m gonna put the rice in
the Instant Pot and then I’m going to add in eight cups of water. We’re puttin ‘in our
first four cups of water. Second four cups of water. And now we’re just gonna put the lid in. My whole point in doing
this is because I know many of you got Instant Pots
for Christmas or at sales and you haven’t started using yours yet. I’ve had mine for, I don’t
know, maybe 8 months or so now, and I use it more and more each month. I’ve used mine a lot on
my freezer cooking days. I’m starting to mix in, using it more. Takes me awhile to get to
know new appliances, right? So anyway, I feel comfortable
now doing the brown rice, I’ve done that a lot. So we’re gonna make sure
that the vent is sealed. We don’t want it on venting,
we want it on sealing. And then look how lovely this is. So this is for the Instant
Pot model of course. We’re gonna click rice. Look at that. That’s it. I clicked it. Now it’s gonna make the rice. It’ll be amazing. Oh, you’ll hear me say
this again and again. So this says, it said 12 minutes but now it has to build up pressure. So the pressure building up
process can take 10-15 minutes. Then its gonna cook the
rice for 12 minutes, then we’re gonna have to vent it. That can take another 5-7 minutes. So it’s still nice, I
don’t have to babysit a pot on the stove and the rice is lovely. So again, this is just one
of my kitchen assistants helpin’ us make dinner. So we’ve got brown rice in
the instant pot, we’ve got corn on the cob here and
we have our parmesan turkey burgers in here and we have
boys now doin’ some Lego’s and we’re gonna work on
our afternoon reading while dinner cooks. So we are all spread out here. Naomi has her Woodzeez
house and her Polly Pockets and different things. She’s burping Benjamin for
me because he’s been here nursin’ while we started
reading Farmer Boy today. Everyone else is doin’
Lego’s but our turkey burgers just beeped so I’m gonna go flip them. And the Instant Pot is now countin’ down and I’ll check on our corn. We’ve gotta scooch soon but
I think we’re gonna make it. Oh yeah, okay, so there they are. And our Instant Pot, now it’s
actually reading 13 minutes. Okay guys, so this is just
the reality of what the pan of turkey burgers look
like when they come out. I know it doesn’t look too appetizing. I am cookin’ ’em from frozen, though, and I’m not standin’ here
flipping them in a pan. So this is mostly water that’s in here. I’m gonna drain this off,
flip the turkey burgers, and put ’em back in for
about 15 more minutes and then we’ll check their temperature. So here they are, all drained
and we’re gonna put ’em back in for about 15 minutes
and check the temperature. And our IP is now on eight minutes. And this is the new digital
thermometer I had picked up on Amazon. It also has the meat temperatures on there which is convenient. The nice thing with the
Instant Pot is if you can’t get right back to it,
it will keep it on warm, and this means it has been
warming for nine minutes since it was completed. We were still reading our
Farmer Boy book, though, and I couldn’t get back to it. So now, we may have some
venting that still needs done. You need to wear hand
protection when you do this. (air releasing) There you go. So the last little bit of
pressure that needs to come out there you go, will come out that way. And I have had viewers tell
me too to watch out because the steam will damage cabinets. Those are all things
you need to be aware of when using an Instant Pot. I just don’t have a good place to do this, so this is how I do it, yay! And then we’ve got, so
our corn is also done and then our turkey burgers are beeping. You know how it goes,
everything happens at one time. Whoo. But hey, these look very good now. We will get the temperature also. Here is our thermometer. Look Liam, we’re gonna stick it in there, and see the numbers going up? Okay, so we are almost at 200 degrees. On here, it says they need
to get to 175 degrees. Whenever I looked it up on they said they needed to reach an
internal temperature of 165. So you can see we’re well within that. I’ll check a few more. So temperature wise
everything looks like it is the right temperature. This little digital thermometer
was 10 bucks on Amazon. We also have this digital thermometer. Because we have to scoot
in about 30 minutes, I am just gonna feed everyone
around the kitchen counter this evenin’. I’m gonna drain this corn now. So I just put some clops of
Kerrygold butter into our corn there, put some salt and pepper
on it, just gonna put the lid on it to let the butter
melt for a few minutes. And we’ve got some background
clean-up noise going on. We are gonna open up the Instant Pot now. It should let me open it. There we go. And, I don’t wanna steam my camera up, but you can get a look
at the rice in there. I’m gonna dump my IP rice
in this Pioneer Woman bowl. But anyway, I’m gonna put
some clops of Kerrygold butter in here to be melting
because we love butter. So here’s how this beautiful
Instant Pot brown rice looks, and I’m gonna put the lid
on it just to steam down the butter into the rice and
add some salt and pepper. So here is how our dinner is
lookin’, those turkey burgers turned out fantastic. Again, recipe is on There is the Instant Pot brown rice, so we have conquered that. There is our buttered corn,
and as always remember that you can text the word freezer,
all one word, to 44222 to get our mega freezer
meal planning pack. Thanks so much for cookin’ dinner with me, and this is our freezer parmesan
turkey burgers in action and again, our Instant Pot brown rice. All of it, you know where to look. I’ll see you next time with
a brand new video, bye bye.

    I love seeing a new video from you. I've been watching since your video announcing you were pregnant with Daniel. I enjoy all videos, especially freezer cooking & cook with me.

  9. Piney Meadows says: give more favor to your rice i find it bebeficial to use chicken or beef broth in instant pot instead of water.Bet your family would love the taste. Tfs your video.The parm burgers sounded yummy. 😊

  10. Sheila says:

    Love your organizational skills and thanks for sharing your family with us. We have a small family, so I like my small Aroma rice cooker and steamer (and crockpot); I like cooking turkey burgers in beef broth; it makes them taste just like hamburger.

  11. Tim Swinson says:

    I use my PC to cook my corn from frozen in 10mins and release the pressure Under the stove vent

  12. Anita Tucker says:

    The parmesan turkey burgers looked yummy. So excited to see your notification.

  16. Holly jj says:

    Turkey burgers look yummy!

  17. while baby's sleeping says:

    Loved your video!! I always season the liquid (water/broth) i use to cook my rice with the salt pepper and even with garlic and onion powder or what ever seems good that day. I add it in with the rice at the beginning. I feel like it gets the flavor "in" the rice as opposed to "on" the rice. Have a great night

  18. Jenny Wheeler says:

    Be careful with the instant pot. I saw on the news they are doing a huge recall on them something about a defect melting the entire bottom of the system. Look into it!

  19. DragonflyArtz1 says:

    Nice! I must get one of those. can't wait to see your new King Kong Pressure Cooker!! That will be so fabulous for freezer meal days! Rice rice baby!

  20. Hey, Stella! says:

    I put a kitchen towel over my instant pot when I vent so the steam is more contained. Thank you for showing us how you make it. I’m still intimidated with my Instant Pot and haven’t attempted rice yet. Now I will. ❤️

  21. Linda Dobranetski says:

    I love my instant pot, also I love my air fryer. I cannot wait to see you open your air fryer and your new electric pressure cooker.

  22. Sarah pauline says:

    analog. I can't help myself and I know I am obnoxious. Sorry!

    Love watching your channel! I bought a Power Pressure Cooker almost 2 wks ago. It is so similar to the Instant Pot, however I am so scared to use it!! Any ideas to start with?

  29. Heidi LeWren says:

    I love my air fryer! Its a Nuwave 6qt and I use it more than my pressure cooker (Power Pressure Cooker XL). Both were a Christmas present and I do enjoy them. Thanks for sharing the video and have a great week! I look forward to your recipes with the new kitchen toys!

  30. YodShinWawAyin says:

    We love our air fryer. We use it mostly for bacon and fries/tater tots. Looking forward to see what you make in it.

  31. Eileen Killen says:

    "faithful rice rinser" 😂 love you and your family ❤

  34. Liz McGonagle says:

    Jamerril I was delighted to see the turkey burgers and how delicious they looked once done. I suffer with chronic pain but I still want the family to have good hearty, healthy meals. Also, I have three boys, two at home and one who "drops in" a lot around meal times!!! Your turkey burgers look ideal and are giving me other ideas too. I need help with lifting trays etc but I think I can do this !! I will let you know. Lots of love from Liz McGonagle from Scotland UK xxx

  35. Caroline Coffey says:

    Hi jamerrill are the instant pots like old pressure cookers my mum loved hers hope you guys all ok thanks for sharing xx

  36. Leslie Leslie says:

    A little time saving tip… fill your pot with a couple cups of water, 2-3 tbs of sugar and add your corn. Bring to a boil and steam away! It’s so much faster than boiling a big pot of water 😊 Another GREAT video!!!

  37. boscoitalics says:

    Busy momma ♥♥

  38. Learning as I go says:

    Nutritional yeast is good mixed in with the rice. Looks great. 😀

  39. GILLIAN Muspic says:

    Get yourself a pvc elbow joint to put over the toggle when you vent the pot. It will direct the steam in a direction away from the cabinets. Something like this–90-degree-elbow.1000166792.html Also it is good to know that by the time the steam reaches the cabinetbit is cool. Still moist but cool.

  40. IndigenousPotliquor says:

    I can't wait to see the air fryer I keep going back-and-forth about getting one of those

  41. Midge Silvers says:

    Looks delicious

  42. Patricia Llewellyn says:

    Your gonna love the air fryer

  43. Camille Coopersmith says:

  44. Whats In My Life 2017 says:

    ALERT…..I saw a news story that some models of the instant pot are melting/catching fire!!! Please look into it!!!!

  45. The Young Family Farm says:

    Dinner on those sports days is so hard for me! Do you eat before and then have to feed everyone again later or eat late and risk melt downs? Thanks for the video!

  46. Faika Zawa says:

    Your videos make me warm and cozy 😆😆😆😆😉

  47. John Hill says:

    I got one of those Instant Pots for Christmas but haven't used it yet ,maybe I'll try making rice in it. Thanks for sharing really helpful. ……Sharon

  48. kateymateymusic1 says:

    Washing rice makes it more fluffy and less starchy, but if you are using a glutinous or sticky rice like used in Asian dishes you never rinse the rice first. So there you go

  49. Cleo Taylor says:

    rice bas small traces of arsnic in it like the seeds from apples.

    I have a insta pot. never have used it. you are.amazing.

  50. Ang Kenny says:

    Really appreciate the instant pot rice tutorial. Would love to see more instant recipe's I got one for Christmas and I'm a little scared of it 🤣🤣.

  51. Rachal Nocchi says:

    I don't have an Instant Pot, but do have a pressure cooker and absolutely love it. A tip for the venting, I just throw a clean tea towel over it and let it vent. It keeps the steam from harming my cabinets. I have a small kitchen and there isn't much room for me to put it anywhere else either. 🙂

  52. jessXjessful says:

    Yay for cooking videos!!!!!

  53. Ivory Herman says:

    Can't wait to see that air fryer! 🙂

  54. Jennifer Pennacchio says:

    Love your videos!

  55. Mikesha Row says:

    I totally thought for a second you were trying to put the burgers in your dishwasher!!!

  56. abby chaison says:

    Great videos and your family seems so relaxed and organized😃

  57. Liberty Pierce says:

    Put a folded towel over the vent release!

  58. Liz Lane says:

    Always so happy to see one of your videos pop up! Hope you and your family are well and blessings on you!

  59. Katy Abbott says:

    Would love to see how you do your bun please x

  60. Homemaking Maven says:

  61. Jennifer Mitchell says:

    Farmer Boy is my favorite Little House book. Consider reading the Grandma’s Attic series one of these days. My recommendation! I’m always glad to see one of your videos up, I appreciate you!

  62. roxanne jenkins says:

    Are your kids still doing dance?

  63. Beauty Sunshine says:

    Great video!! Are those your naturals nails? If so they are beautiful!!!

  64. MsRubberbiscuit says:

    I love cooking videos. I throw a kitchen towel over the steam release when I open it so that I don’t damage the cabinets.

  65. The Melmar Group says:

    Love that you did this video. I've been experimenting with rice in the instant pot and had struggles. All the recipes I've seen say do 1 1/4 cup water to 1 cup rice but it just doesn't work out well. I'm going back to 2 cups per cup of rice because of you. Also I saw a tip about getting the pressure to come up faster – just heat your cooking liquid on the stove or in the microwave and the pressure cooker will come to pressure so much faster

  66. Heather Nowell says:

    I just ordered a instant pot!! Love your channel😍

  67. bambi oliver says:

    Thank you! This helps me feel more comfortable.

  68. Creator Unknown says:

    I must ask are any of your kids pecky eaters? how do u deal with this? My kiddo has food allergies and now as a result hs turned into a pecky eater. Any mom has advice on this?

  69. Becky Branscome says:

    My husband bought me one of these and its a big time saver. Especially feeding a family of 5. Love you recipes

  70. Becky Branscome says:

    Meant to say love your recipes lol

  71. Keshia Watson says:

    Love your videos! I have a question. Can you make chicken and dumplings in the IP ? I have had mine a year and really never used it. If you can could you do a video making chicken and dumplings in it.

  72. LaNina Wyatt says:

    You such a wonderful mom with a lot of patients

  73. Green Giant says:

    I love your videos so much!!!

  74. Thriftyshopper L says:

    I always text but get nothing

  75. Kimberly Statzer says:

    Looks good✔

  76. Donnita Coble says:

    You was lied to. Arsenic does not get on the rice in the packaging

  77. R.L. Amor says:

    So you keep legos in a tote?
    That’s brilliant!
    My goodness we have legos scattered all over my house.😆

  78. Jacqueline DuBroy says:

    I put a tea towel over my IP when it releases. It protects cabinets.

  79. Shannon Ealey says:

    5:30/6:30 is like usual time isn’t it? And late is like 7/8 and early is like 4:45/5

    Is that the same for everyone out there? 3:30 seems like a snack lol

  80. Astrid Dorsey says:

    I love watching and listening to you prepare meals. Your videos make me so happy at the end of a long day. Thank you

  81. Rachel Aaroen says:

    Turkey burgers look delicious!

    I just love how real life your videos are! Thank you so much for sharing. 💜

  83. Diane Crane says:

    I love your nails and nail color.

  84. Lynda W. says:

    Should try corn on cob in instant pot…..wonder how that would work.

  85. The Therapy Mama says:

    You are making me want to give my pressure cooker one more shot! I just haven't loved it.

  86. Office Administrator says:

    Jamerrill I was wondering if you had changed something on your audio?The last few videos sound different.

  87. Melinda Banning says:

    If I had a power pressure cooker for no other reason than to cook brown rice it would be totally worth it.

  88. juliansgma says:

    Brown rice takes me 29 min in the IP

  89. Pajama Mama says:

    I always enjoy seeing what new color your nails are. I like them when they're fresh painted, looks glamorous, and I like them when the paint is all cracking off too because that's real life.

  90. Shana Bridges says:

    Hi, when I let the steam out I lay a rag over the steam release.

  91. Kellee R says:

    How do you do it? Stay sane and positive..raising 8 dinner and keeping the house clean.. You make it look so easy! I find it so hard since I had my twins. We now have 5 kiddos. Please share tips!!!!!

  92. OnePurplePrincess says:

    I just turn the pot when venting so the valve releases in the air away from the cabinet. My kitchen is much smaller and I have less options.

  93. Amie Robbins says:

    i love my insta pot for rice , it is the only way to cook it now!

  94. elizabeth bonilla says:

    I grew up rinsing my rice.

  95. southerncouponista says:

    You're really mastering that Instant Pot!!!

  96. Whitney Sews says:

    Look yummy!

  97. M K says:

    Jamerrill have you tried making popcorn in the IP? I saw a few videos on it but haven't been brave enough to try it yet. It looks quite interesting!

  98. Alice Gibson says:

    with pasta, good to manual release, so it doesn't over cook, with meat natural release

  99. Cindy Moore says:

    Just a time savings tip – you can add your butter, salt & pepper to your rice before cooking it. I also like how the flavors infuse into the rice better that way. =)
