I like doing rice in the Instant Pot.
Actually, I haven’t done rice on its own, although I’ve been told that it’s fantastic. Since I only make enough rice (1/2 cup) for the meal we’re eating that would be a a pretty empty pot.
But I really like the results when I cook it with chicken.
So I decided to do it with pork.
I usually do pork chops in the slow cooker.
I believe that will change. These were better and no advance planning required.

I consider this to be a simple recipe – even though it was done in the Instant Pot. If one were more ambitious, onions and garlic, and even carrots, peppers, and celery, could be sautéed in the Pot before adding the rest of the ingredients.
I was being lazy so I didn’t bother. I had winter squash to do in the oven…. All easy.
I was looking for recipe inspiration the other day. I don’t remember what for….
I typed my main ingredients and hit search.
I found 3 likely looking dishes.
I clicked on the first one. I started paging down. After 14 clicks of the ‘page down’ arrow I closed the tab.
My internet speed is not fast enough for the ‘lazy load’ images so all I was seeing was empty white space with a heading like ‘Stir well’.
I went to the next possibility.
I gave up on that one after 8 pages.
On to number 3.
I actually found the recipe after only 2 pages…. but the first ingredient was 1/2 cup Ranch dressing.
Since everyone seems to be loading up their recipe blogs with 10 or 12 or 20 images and lots and lots of words before the recipe can be found I am assuming this is what the world wants.
I have always thought that I’m ‘other-worldly’.
