Dry doesn't necessarily mean no water in it. It's also the fats. Try using a less-lean piece of something next time.


It's Basmati rice.


Are you soaking it first? I've read that you should soak it 15-30 minutes in water first...

yes soak or cook a bit longer.

I stick with my rice cooker although the POT is very fast!

None of the recipes include soaking but I do soak it before I boil it. I'll try that next time and see if it helps. It's crazy dry and comes out in one solid chunk if I don't chop it up with the little scooper.

It's rice. I'm basically fucking up boiling water. :ROFLMAO:

Do everything the same as always. But pour in a beer, just before you close the pot.

Hey, it can't hurt.

Or use half a bottle of vodka instead, and even if it doesn't work, eat the rice and you won't care!

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Oh, well,.. that's definitely water. Do you want rice that's clumpy, or not? If not, rinse it first, and then try 1:1 water:rice by weight, plus a quarter cup for steam in the environment.

That's white chicken chili from Pressure Luck:
https://pressureluckcooking.com/recipe/ ... ken-chili/


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO6jRjTQfVA

Taste was EXCELLENT, I really loved it. It wasn't spicy at all; I might kick it up a little in the future. I would have liked it to be slightly thicker, maybe I'll use more corn starch next time, or a little cheddar that might melt down better than the monterey jack.

It filled the 8-quart pot to within an inch of the "max" line, so no doubling of this recipe.

I forgot to add the corn. :frust:

But yeah, I really liked this chili and I'll definitely be making it again!

My corned beef recipe said to cook the veggies for only 4-5 minutes, but I did 11 instead. Veggies were a little on the mushy side.

The recipe isn't showing up correctly on my iPad, so I'll offer 2 or 3 general ideas used in the food world to increase thickness...

Since I can't see the recipe, I can't make a direct reference, but the first thing you can do is reduce the overall liquid...so, if it's 5 quarts of broth, r whatever, reduce it to 4, or reduce 6 to 5, etc., ...

One of the more popular ways, is to take 1/4, or 1/3 of the soup/chili/stew, and blending it...and then adding it back to the soup, chili, etc.

You can also add arrowroot as you blend it, much like a slurry with flour....just add a tsp or so...

Another option is putting the chili in a pot on the stove, and letting it simmer on low without a lid for a bit....moisture evaporites, and the flavors will concentrate, much like a sauce....or use the sauté feature on the Instapot...

Anyway, just a few suggestions.
