How to Cook Rice With Beef In Instant Pot
If you have stacking inserts for your instant pot, it is really easy to make two dishes in the same cooking.
There is a little bit of a trick to making pan-in-pan rice work - you should put the rice pan right under a lid, and DO NOT uncover it when you remove it from your instant pot when the beef is done cooking.
I simply take the beef out, let it rest, and place the rice (with the pan lid still in place) and sit for about 10 minutes.
This will help it carryover cook and get nice and soft.
If you find your rice is a bit too firm, simply pop it back in the Instant Pot for another 3 minutes and force release.
It will be perfect!

Yes - please see instructions above to make a side dish of rice in the same pot with korean beef.
I personally think the salty sweet sauce makes this dish - Bulgogi is a blend of soy sauce, brown sugar, asian pear (or red apple), garlic, ginger, ground black pepper and sesame oil - it gives beef a rich and delicious flavor that I can't get enough of.
