  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Transfer rice to a bowl and keep warm.

  • Rinse out pot liner and choose Saute function. Add grapeseed oil, chicken, and sausage; saute until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add celery, bell pepper, and onion. Saute 1 more minute. Add tomatoes, Creole seasoning, and Cajun seasoning. Add shrimp and cook just until tails curl up, 1 to 3 minutes. Serve jambalaya on top of or mixed into the cooked rice.

This may be a tasty recipe it is not Cajun Creole perhaps. Being of Acadian decent I have never been served nor prepared jambalaya with tomatoes. The meat the trinity(onion celery bell pepper) and rice are all cooked together in 30 minutes or less. Cooked separately it is rice and gravy. Read More

For how easy this was, it tasted very good. I was worried I would mess it up since I did change the steps a bit, but it turned out great! Using the Instant Pot just to cook just the rice doesn't really save any time, so I sautéd the sausage and chicken with some garlic in the pot for about 5 minutes first, then turned it off and added the rice and chicken broth. I used 2 cups of broth instead of 1. Then on top of that I added all the other ingredients and spices, including one chopped jalapeño, and I put the shrimp in frozen. Mix it all together and set the Instant Pot to cook for 8 minutes, then release the pressure using the release valve. Everything was cooked perfectly. Read More

Easy to make and the 2 steps cooking the rice and the other ingredients separatly I found better than other recipes. I just double the quantity of rice and chicken broth. I used a package (4) andouille and a pound of shrimps. At the end I put the cooked rice back in the pot and mixed in to the jambalaya. Read More

Great flavor and had so many people ask me for the recipe. One thing I figured out is I really don't like doing rice in the instant pot (it stuck to the bottom). Also a good thing about this is if you don't want to use your Instant Pot you can just do it on the stove if you have a big enough pot since everything is done on saute. Read More
