Rice with Sweet Peppers and Ham -Instant Pot Pressure Cooker or Stovetop

This Rice with Sweet Peppers and Ham is a nice easy meal that's flavored with thyme and is really great served with hot sauce-if your crowd's into that sort of thing:@) I chose to make it in my pressure cooker but the original recipe is for the stove top. My only other changes, I cut everything into bigger chunks and did add more peppers than called for. This was a very nice meal and great way to use up some leftover ham from the freezer.

Rice with Sweet Peppers and Ham-adapted from NY Times
1 Tblsp olive oil
1/4 C onion, small dice-I made mine larger and used more
1/2 C green and red bell pepper, small dice-I made mine larger and used more
1/4 C ham, 1/4" cubed-I made mine larger and used a lot more
1 C long grain rice
1 1/4 C water-didn't seem like enough... I used 1 1/2 C for the pressure cooker
1 small bay leaf
1/2 tsp dried thyme
S&P to taste
1 Tblsp butter-I forgot to add this

Pressure Cooker:
Use saute function, add olive oil, onion and peppers. Cook for a couple minutes, add rice and thoroughly coat rice with oil. Add ham and cook for a minute. Add water, spices and pinch of S&P. Seal PC and use rice function. Automatic release, add butter, fluff and serve.

Stove Top:
Heat oil, add onion, peppers and ham, cook until wilted. Add everything except butter and cook for 17 minutes or until rice is done. Add butter, fluff and serve. I still think you'll need more water... just sayin.

Eat well and have a happy day:@)
