Instant Pot Cheesy Rice and Broccoli

I am continually amazed at how wonderful my Instant Pot cooks.  I have cooked all sorts of meals in it and the majority have turned out wonderful.  This recipe is no exception.  The rice is cooked to perfection as is the broccoli.  When the cheese is added at the end of the cooking time, everything blends together nicely.  Small bites of broccoli in rice coated with delicious cheese.  In my book, cheese makes everything better.

This is a great side dish to serve with your main meal.
