Shitake mushrooms and Chinese sausage embedded in tasty moist rice to create an effortless spin on fried rice straight from the instant pot. Garnish with fresh cut green onions and fried shallots to add multiple dimensions to a satisfying and affordable meal. Notes of traditional fried rice flavors make this instant pot shortcut a good option for meal preps. This meal stores great in the refrigerator and tastes great heated back up later.

        A variety of tasty beans that have been stewed in chicken broth, served with tender pieces of sweet shredded ham, poured over tender white rice, is so filling and delicious your family will thank you. This combination is not just a great way to use up a left over ham; it is an affordable approach to plan your meals and stretch your budget.
