Instant Pot Chinese Sausage & Chicken with Rice

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.

Watch the video and follow the instructions below to add this cost effective meal to your menu. Let the rice stand for a bit prior to serving as the additional moisture is soaked up and evaporates shortly (5 minutes) after opening.
