Instant Pot Sushi Rice

There are few foods that have me doing the happy dance as much as sushi rolls. But let me tell you, it can be an expensive habit! So over the past year and a half, I’ve been learning and trying to perfect making it at home. And little did I know that the key is the rice! So when you combine this new mission with my slight obsession with my Instant Pot, you get this perfect Instant Pot sushi rice! I’m very happy about it.

And as Always… Please Pin & Share the Love!

    I didn’t think this rice recipe would taste good as I was mixing the white wine vinegar and rice vinegar because of the strong smell. I was pleasantly surprised after making and tasting the sushi I made with this rice. It was very good.

    This is flavorful and easy. I was a little hesitant as it seemed to use more vinegar and salt than I would usually throw in, but it was great. I say throw in as I don’t usually use a recipe but wanted to double check times and method because I was using my new Instant Pot. Next time I’ll follow this recipe again. I’m enjoying it as the base for my sushi bowl while my daughter is rolling hers now.

    Thank you for this recipe! I never knew sushi rice could be so easy. I was too scared to use the whole bowl of the vinegar mix, so I only used about 3/4 of it. Tasted great!

    Thank you! This was yummy! I For me about ⅔ the sugar in general and ⅔ the vinegar I used today, maybe no change to the salt. Very tasty, great texture. I halved the recipe at 10 min Low Pressure, with a 10 minute release. I’m using the 8qt IP. I would shorten the natural release to 7 minutes next time.

    If I’m making double the rice, do I still cook it for 12 mins?

    Could I substitute white balsamic vinegar for the white wine vinegar? I just got home from the grocery store and overlooked the need to buy white wine vinegar. Oy!

      I guess it’s worth a try. At least if it doesn’t work, it’s not really that expensive.

    I don’t have white wine vinegar, can I just use double rice vinegar?

    I’ve cooked professionally for over 20 years and sushi rice has always been something I’ve had a hard time with. I’ve gotten it right as much as I’ve gotten it wrong. This recipe was SUPER easy and the rice came out perfectly!!!!!
