Instructions
SAUTÉ THE VEGETABLES AND PORK.
  1. Select Sauté and adjust the heat to Medium or Normal. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the inner cooking pot. When it’s hot, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Season the pork with the salt and pepper. Add the pork to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Transfer the pork and onion to a small bowl.
PRESSURE COOK THE RICE.
  1. Add the water to the pot and scrape the bottom of the pan to remove any browned pieces. Add the rice. Lock the lid into place and turn the valve to “sealing.” Select Rice, which will automatically set the cooking time based on the amount of rice and water in the pot. When cooking ends, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then turn the valve to “venting” to quick release the remaining pressure.
FINISH THE RICE.
  1. Unlock and remove the lid. Stir the rice and create a well in the center so you can see the bottom of the pot. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil into the center. Pour the beaten egg into the hole and stir quickly. Stir in the soy sauce and the pork and onions. Add the peas and carrots to the rice and allow to rest for 5 minutes to heat through. Garnish with the scallions (if using).

    It was easy and turned out good. My instapot manual said 1:1 ratio and 4 minutes. I didnt have pork chops thawed, so I used pork sausage. It turned out wonderfully. I will make this again.

    Hi Mig1234,

    You would push the rice out of the center leaving space where you see the stainless steel bottom, add oil and uncooked egg. Then stir, the unit will have enough residual heat plus keep warm to cook the egg.
