How to Make Instant Pot Stir Fry Rice Noodles Recipe – Step by Step
Step 1: Add Ingredients to Instant Pot
Add the water, teriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil to the bowl of your Instant Pot and whisk to combine. Add the brown rice noodles and carrots and attach the lid.

Tips and Notes for Instant Pot Stir Fry Rice Noodles Recipe
Veggie Options: Carrots, broccoli, green onion, and snap peas are my preferred stir fry vegetables but feel free to use whatever you like or have on hand! Bell peppers, mushrooms, celery, cabbage, or any of your favorite vegetables would work well here.
Spice Level: This recipe is very mild as written. For a bit of extra spice, add sriracha, gochujang, or chili flakes. You could also add some garlic chili paste for extra flavor, which I love to do!
What kind of Noodles Works Best For Stir Fry?
I used Thai style brown rice noodles for this stir fry rice noodles recipe, which are a thicker noodle. I prefer thicker, sturdier noodles because they hold up well and really absorb the flavors from cooking. You can use any kind of noodle you prefer for this recipe, though be sure that its standard stove-top cook time is less than 5 minutes.
Can These Stir Fry Rice Noodles be made Gluten Free?
Yes, though it is NOT gluten free with the particular brand of teriyaki sauce I used that is listed in the recipe card. Most teriyaki sauces are made with soy sauce which is not gluten free due to its wheat component. If you would like to make this recipe gluten free, be sure to choose a gluten free teriyaki sauce like Kikkoman Gluten Free Teriyaki Sauce or Primal Kitchen No Soy Teriyaki Sauce.
Are Rice Noodles Gluten Free?
Yes, rice noodles are made from rice which is naturally gluten free. Make sure to check the labels of whatever brand you choose to purchase just to be sure, though. I used Thai Style Noodles from Lotus Foods which are gluten free.
