What Rice To Use For Instant Pot Ground Beef Burrito Bowl
I used Long grain rice boy feel free to swap. If you use something like brown rice you will need to adjust the liquid ratio and cook time as it requires more.
I find white rice taste fantastic next to the beef and it offers a nice starch for my growing boys.
Can I Substitute Ground Beef
Swap the ground beef with turkey or ground chicken in this recipe. Each will work and slightly alter the flavor a bit.
One tip is to ensure you scrape the bottom of your Instant Pot to remove any stuck on meat. This will help you avoid a burn notice as it cooks.
Another tip is if you use ground turkey or ground chicken swap the broth out. Use vegetable or chicken broth. It will taste a lot better.
How to Store Leftover Burrito Bowls
Take your beef and rice mixture and store in the fridge for up to three days. Then when you want some heat it up in the microwave or in a pan on the stove.
If you do stovetop make sure if it seems dry to add a little extra liquid like more broth. It will help prevent it from drying out.
I also always leave toppings off until I plate it up. Otherwise it can make mixture go bad quicker.
