Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

I love delicious elegant meals, but normally they take hours to prepare in the kitchen. No thanks!  But ever since I started using my Instant Pot even the most elegant meals are done in a snap. This Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto is one of those meals that used to require lots of stirring and watching, but now it is almost as easy as setting it and forgetting it. It is a must-try on your dinner menu just like my Instant Pot Deviled Eggs

This dish is creamy delicious and packed full of delicious rich flavors that you will love. 

How to make Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

  • Press the Saute button Add and melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic, cook for 3–5 minutes until onions are translucent.
  • Add in the mushrooms and allow them to start to cook.  Stirring while they cook, for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add rice and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add 1 cup broth and stir for 2–3 minutes until it is absorbed by the rice.
  • Add remaining 3 cups broth, Lock lid.
  • Press the Manual button and adjust time to 5 minutes (HIGH).
  • When the timer beeps, do a quick release.
  • Open the lid, you may have a bit of excess broth still in your pot that has not fully absorbed yet, if so, place your pot on saute and continue to cook off the remaining liquid.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you would like to make this a vegetarian dish you can swap out the chicken broth for a vegetable broth without altering the flavor. You can also sub out the parmesan cheese as well. 
  • It will look like there is too much liquid in the pot prior to cooking. Trust me it will be fine. This recipe is essentially fail-proof. 
  • If you want to make this even more elegant you can add a drizzle of truffle oil over the risotto once it is cooked. 
  • You technically can use any short grain rice, but Arborio rice really is the secret ingredient to good risotto. 
  • For the most creamy flavor you will want to serve immediately.
