Duping My Grandma's Spanish Rice | GLUTEN-FREE SIDE DISH



You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!


A bit of trial and error, along with research into mid-century recipes, helped me make an Instant Pot version of my Grandma’s spanish rice. My Dad says it pretty much perfect and I couldn’t agree more. This recipe is pure comfort food and a crowd-pleasing winner!
