Before you even heat up your Instant Pot, be sure to prep your ingredients and have them ready to go.
Press “Sauté” on your Instant Pot
Once it's heated up, add the olive oil, garlic, and onion, sautéing 'til they become soft.
Add in the sausage slices, and brown for a good 1 to 2 minutes.
Then sprinkle in the seasonings, and add the rice and chicken broth, mixing everything together.
Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set the valve to seal, and press “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” with a cook time of 5 minutes. Allow it to do a natural release.
Once it's released, go ahead and remove the lid, and stir in the thawed peas. Put the lid back on, and allow those peas to warm for about 5 minutes. No need to turn on the pot; just let everything sit in its own warmth.
Then stir and fluff the rice, and serve it up!
