Pineapple Rice (Electric Pressure Cooker)


  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple or canned (dice 5 slices from a can of slices, half of the can)

  • 1 cup pineapple juice (or just empty 1- 20oz can of crushed pineapple with juice)

  • 1 cup water +1 teaspoon better than bouillon (or 1 cup chicken broth)

  • 1 T lime juice

  • 4 T butter

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried cilantro

  • 1.5 cups jasmine rice


  1. Spray inside bottom of pot with nonstick cooking spray. 

  2. Combine ingredients in electric pressure cooker. Cook for 8 minutes at high pressure then use natural release for 10 minutes. 

  3. Fluff with wooden utensil and serve. 


I buy a large can of pineapple juice and pour 1 cup into glass jars, cover them with lids or cling wrap and freeze for easy use in this recipe. Also, 1 cup of diced pineapple is about ½ of a can of the pineapple rings. I like to cut my pieces from rings so I can make the pieces very small. 

Stovetop Tips:

If cooking on stovetop I would add 1 additional cup of water or broth, bring to boil, reduce to simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes until rice is tender and most of liquid is absorbed.
