Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

I used this recipe as my inspiration, but I changed it a lot, so here’s my own version. I can easily eat mushroom risotto all by itself! The crispy mushrooms and flavorful broth combined with tender rice make for a truly delectable dish.

Press the saute button on the Instant pot and wait until it says “Hot”. Saute for 15 minutes, or until crispy:

1 lb. sliced cremini mushrooms (There will be a lot of liquid from the mushrooms at first, but they will get crispy. Be patient.)

Add and saute for a few more minutes:

1 small onion, diced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

Add and saute for 2-3 minutes, until the rice is starting to look translucent on the edges:

2 T. butter

2 c. arborio rice

Add and stir well, then cook at high pressure for 5 minutes and quick release:

1 T. soy sauce

4 1/2 c. chicken broth

Stir into the hot rice and serve:

2 T. grated Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

We like to serve the mushroom risotto with grilled chicken, but as I mentioned before, I think it makes a great meal on its own.
