Instant Pot Gluten-free Ham And Pineapple Rice Recipe From Val's Kitchen

I have another gluten-free Instant Pot rice dish for you! My youngest has an extended school year and this year there is no school lunch during the summer. So, I’ve been making some different gluten-free meals whose leftovers will store and reheat well. My son loves rice. He also enjoys ham. I decided to make a rice dish that has (in my mind) a sort of Hawaiian feel to it. Preparing this Ham And Pineapple Rice is almost effortless. The Instant Pot does the cooking for you, which results in a tasty rice dish that’s both sweet and a little salty. And those leftovers I mentioned? You’ll be glad to know that the dish reheats nicely in the microwave.  Here’s how I make Gluten-free Instant Pot Ham And Pineapple Rice.

    I’ve never thought of putting ham and pineapple in rice. That sounds so good! I’ll have to figure out how to make it without an instant pot because I’d really like to try it. Thanks for the recipe!

    Ham and pineapple is such a great combination! I wouldn’t have thought of serving it this way. Thanks for the idea!

    Ham and pineapple play so well together. My son loves the combination on pizza so I know he will love this one pot meal. It’s a great meal to add to my menu this week.

    I can eat this instant pot ham and pineapple rice even without viands. It can be a full meal on its own and the taste of pineapple can really add flavor to rice and the ham can make the meal a lot fuller.

    Yes exactly, it’s that same feel but a little more subtle than it is on pizza.

    You don’t list pineapple as an ingredient nor say when to put the ham in! I’m going to use a can of chunk pineapple and cook the ham along with all. I have frozen peppers and onion all ready instead of powders.

    It’s for an open house gathering.. uses my leftovers and the hostess’ son lives in hawaii..I’m bringing my ukulele.

    The hame goes in with the rice. Since ham is cooked you could technically add it later but then it’s cold and the rice doesn’t get any of the salty flavor from the ham juice. I have used both chunked pineapple and rings that I cut into chunks. Crushed doesn’t work as well because it really falls apart.
