My family loves Jambalaya and they love red beans and rice too. With this Instant Pot™ recipe, I decided to take a chance and add red beans to the Jambalaya. This was an experiment that worked!
2 Tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced, or 1 teaspoon minced jarred garlic
1 package (13-ounces) fully cooked andouille sausage, sliced diagonally (I had two leftover fully-cooked smoked turkey sausage and added those too)
1 1/4 tsp Cajun seasoning, more if you like spicy!
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
1 can (28-ounces) diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth (I used my favorite, Better Than Bullion)
1 can (15-ounces) red beans, drained
- Set Instant Pot to sauté
2. Add onion and sauté until soft
3. Add garlic, green pepper, celery, and sausage. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
4. Turn Instant Pot off
5. Add remainder of ingredients EXCEPT red beans
6. Set Instant Pot to manual high for 7 minutes (6 minutes if you like the rice firm)
8. Stir in red beans
9. Make sure everything is well-mixed, and serve! Enjoy!
P.S. I love this little knife sharpener. I saw it on RVtravel and have been using it for over two years! It has proven to be a great kitchen gadget. I use it often to keep my good knives sharp.

I love my Instant pots,I have a 3qt and a 6qt.
It is a MUST to have being a full time RV’r.
I love creating my own concoctions.
I think my ribs are my favorite thing to cook in my pot.
Delighted to see Instant pot recipes – thanks for sharing Nancy!
My husband would think he’d died and gone to heaven! Looks very good 😌 Unfortunately, not enough room in our Class B RoadTrek! But, I am encouraging my daughter to start cooking more than black beans in hers!! Love all your posts Nancy 💕
This is one of those ” why didn’t I think of that” ideas! Thanks.
My place of employment would add shrimp with the sausage, man would I scoop that up when it was available.
Is this for 3Q instapot? Sounds great.
I used a 5 quart Instant Pot but I am sure would work just as well cutting down the ingredients a bit.
ha! You added red beans to your jambalaya and that sounds great! I’ll have to try that. I’ve been known to add ground beef to red beans and rice to make it “dirty” red beans and rice! It’s not traditional, but it sure is good!
