To begin making Instant Pot BBQ Pork and Rice I cut 4 loin chops into bite size pieces.  I also sliced up some yellow onion.

Then I  put some olive oil in the Instant Pot, turned the Pot to the Saute Normal function for 4 minutes and dumped in the cut up pork and sliced onion.

When the Pot turned off I poured in two cups of water and used it to deglaze the Pot.  

This is a very important step that involves scraping any food bits off the bottom of the Pot so you avoid the Burn message when the Pot is coming to pressure.

After deglazing the Pot I sprinkled in some long grain white rice.  But I DID NOT STIR.

I used a large wooden spoon to gently push the rice into the liquid in the Pot.

After the rice was submerged I dumped in some gluten free bbq sauce (choose your favourite), some garlic powder, salt and pepper.  I DID NOT STIR.

Then I place the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 4 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 5 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

Next I removed the lid.

After stirring the contents of the Pot I stirred in a bit more bbq sauce.  You can decide whether or not this step is necessary based on your personal preference after you see it cooked.

Next I let everything sit for a couple of minutes.

Then I scooped out individual servings for everyone to enjoy.

Instant Pot BBQ Pork and Rice is an easy week night meal when everyone has places to be.

Enjoy every mouthful of this dish before racing off to your next activity!
