Instant Pot Risotto with Mushrooms

Luxuriously creamy Instant Pot risotto with mushrooms require minimum stirring and comes together quick and easy! Endless possibilities to customize it for your family.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 5 oz sliced portabella mushroom
  • 1 ½ cups Arborio rice
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, optional
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Hit "sear" button on Instant Pot. Once the display reads "HOT" and add olive oil and melt the butter in the pot.
  • Add shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Add mushrooms and cook softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Alternatively, if you sauteed mushrooms in advance, skip this step and add the mushrooms in step 5.)
  • Stir in rice and toast lightly, about 3 minutes.
  • Add wine  and cook until almost evaporated, 1 minute or so.
  • Add 3 ½ cups of broth and give it a good stir, scraping up the bottom.
  • Close the lid and set it to Manual/Pressure Cook for 6 minutes. Make sure the valve is set to "sealing". (It took about 10 minutes for my IP to come to pressure.) As soon as timer is up, do a quick release pressureby carefully turning the valve to "venting". Carefully open the lid.
  • Stir in parmesan cheese and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If needed, add the reserved broth to achieve the desired consistency.
