Quick Bacon-Mushroom Pilaf
- 1 T. butter
- 1 T. olive oil
- 1 1/2 c. medium-grain white rice
- 1/3 c. diced red onion
- 2 c. chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 1/2 c. water
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 4 ounces dried shitake mushrooms
- 1/2 c. cooked, chopped bacon (optional)
Select Sauté or Browning on your pressure cooker and allow to heat.
Add the butter and olive oil to the pressure cooker pot and then add the rice and red onion; stir for three minutes.
Mix in the 3 1/2 cups cooking liquid (broth and water), salt, and mushrooms.
Lock the lid in place and close the pressure valve. Cook at high pressure for 6 minutes. Complete a quick release. Using tongs, remove the mushrooms and slice into bite-sized pieces. Return the sliced mushrooms and add the chopped bacon to the rice and stir well to combine and warm both the mushrooms and the bacon. Serve warm.
