Purple Cabbage Risotto in the Instant Pot


  • 3 Tablespoons Butter,
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Onion (Minced)
  • 2 Cups Arborio Rice
  • 3 3/4 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 Cups Purple Cabbage (Shredded (you can use green if you prefer))
  • 1 Tablespoon Coarse Kosher Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Fresh Cracked Black Pepper (To taste. )
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan


  1. Add both fats to the bottom of the Instant Pot and turn on the sauté button.
  2. When the butter is melted, add the minced onion and stir until it softens.
  3. Add the arborio rice and stir for three to four minutes until a few kernels of the rice start to brown.
  4. Add the liquid, the cabbage, the salt and stir to combine.
  5. Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook on high for 7 minutes.
  6. When the pot has finished pressure cooking, do a quick release of the steam by turning the knob immediately.
  7. Stir the risotto and add the parmesan and cracked black pepper.
  8. Remove from the pot immediately because risotto gets gross if it keeps cooking. Serve hot.
