Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 cups brown rice, rinsed
  • 4 cups water
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded, cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup yellow onion, peeled, cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped, cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Step 1

    Combine brown rice, water, and salt in the pot (if referencing lines within the pot, add rice to the pot first, then fill to 2-cup line with liquid). Place lid on the pot. Using the function arrows, select BROWN RICE, then press START/STOP to begin program. (Unit will display an animation while cooking; program will take approx. 50 to 60 minutes.)

  • Step 2

    When cooking is complete, remove rice from the pot and set aside. Rinse pot clean.

  • Step 3

    Place pot back in the unit’s base and set lid aside. Using the function arrows, select SEAR/SAUTÉ, set temperature to HIGH, then press START/STOP to begin preheating. (Progress bar will display while unit preheats; preheating will take approx. 8 to 10 minutes.)

  • Step 4

    When preheating is complete (unit will beep and display ADD FOOD), add vegetable oil, ground beef, and pork sausage to the pot. Cook until browned, breaking meat up with a spoon or spatula (about 10 minutes).

  • Step 5

    Add the bell pepper, onion, celery, and garlic to the pot and cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are softened, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 6

    Add the flour, thyme, chili powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper, and stir to combine. Add chicken stock, bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Fold in the reserved brown rice and parsley and allow to warm through. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. When cooking is complete, press START/STOP to turn off the unit and serve dirty rice while warm.
