I’m confused it says “fill water to the 2-cup mark” so add 2 cups of water ? And the rice is cooked ? I pan fried it until it was golden brown now I just put it in top of the ribs ? Thanks
Water is in the inner pot of the InstantPot. Yes, rice is cooked and should mix with the pork ribs and place in a bowl and then place the bowl inside the Instantpot.
Do I have to use a bowl I thought you aren’t supposed to put other things I. There ?
Very interesting recipe! To be 100% sure: the rice you use in step 2 is dry raw rice, right? And then you are going to pan-fry this dry rice with spices (peppercorns, star anise and cinnamon) until the dry rice becomes slightly golden. By doing so, the rice will be flavored with the spices, correct? Last question: do you use Sichuan peppercorns or regular black (or white) peppercorns? Thanks in advance.
You are correct. Regular black pepper
