  • Turn your Instant Pot on Sauté and when it is hot, add oil.

  • Add the bay leaf, oregano, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, salt, and rice, and stir to incorporate.
  • Add water and immediately close the lid.
  • Cook at high pressure for 4 minutes. Allow the pot to rest for undisturbed for 10 minutes, and then release all remaining pressure.
