Cook long-grain rice in under 10 minutes by using a pressure cooker. Here, steamed edamame are folded into the rice just before serving so the beans retain their bright color. Serve alongside our Asian-style short ribs (see related recipe at left). The directions below are designed for a stovetop pressure cooker; if you are using an electric pressure cooker, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
- 1 Tbs. canola oil
- 1 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
- 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
- 1 1/2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
- 2 cups long-grain white rice, such as jasmine
- 4 cups water
- 2 cups steamed shelled edamame
In a stovetop pressure cooker over medium-high heat, warm the canola oil and sesame oil. Add the garlic, ginger and 2 Tbs. of the scallions and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the rice and water. Lock the lid into place. Bring the cooker up to high pressure and maintain high pressure for 7 minutes. Quick-release the pressure and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
Remove the lid, fluff the rice, and stir in the edamame and the remaining 6 Tbs. scallions. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
