In this video, Geoff from geoffmobile.com shows how to make Green Salsa Brown Rice with Chicken and Beans in the Instant Pot pressure cooker. This was recorded in 3D 180 VR using the Vuze XR – a 180 3D VR camera.

Green Salsa Brown Rice with Chicken and Beans
Pressure Cooker Green Chile Chicken and Rice

1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
salt and pepper for seasoning the chicken
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup diced onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
4-ounce can green chiles (optional)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon salt (or up to 1 teaspoon if you like it salty)
2 cups brown rice
12 – 18 ounce bottle of mild salsa verde or green chile sauce
1 – 2 cups chicken broth
15-ounce can white beans, rinsed

Optional Toppings: cheddar or pepper jack cheese, chopped avocado, chopped tomato, corn, cilantro, sour cream or yogurt, crushed tortilla

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add oil into the pressure cooker pot. Using the sautee function, heat the oil until hot. Add chicken and brown 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from the pot and set on a plate.

Select saute on the pressure cooker and add onions (add an extra teaspoon of oil if the pot is dry). Cook until soft, about 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Turn off pressure cooker. Add green chiles, cumin, coriander, salt. Pour salsa into a large liquid measuring cup and add chicken broth to equal a total of 3 1/2 cups of liquid. Pour liquid into the pot and scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Place chicken on top; do not stir. Add rice on top, and pat down but do not stir. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 27 minutes.

When cooking is complete, use a natural release.

Remove chicken to a cutting board and shred into bite-sized pieces. Return the chicken to the pot, add the white beans, and stir.

To serve, spoon into a bowl and add desired toppings.

Technical notes:
VR 180 3D video was captured in full automatic setting, and exported in Auto/Optimal ProRes 422 from Vuze XR Studio. Video edited in Adobe Premiere (Legal Creative Cloud license) and exported as a 5.7k 3D stereoscopic side-by-side VR 180 H.264 video using “target bitrate” of 135 Mbps and “maximum bitrate” of 240 Mbps, at maximum rendering depth and maximum render quality.

In the future, I will use manual exposure on the Vuze XR (as the auto exposure often seems to overexpose the ingredients in the Instant Pot in this video).

Live Sound during cooking was recorded using on-camera audio. Voiceover Audio was recorded later, using a Zoom H1 with Sennheiser ME-2 Lavalier microphone. Music of the Geoff Peters Trio was recorded previously on a Sony Minidisc live at a wedding.

This VR 180 3D video was filmed using a Vuze XR camera.

Driving to Shaughnessy from Downtown Vancouver with Vuze XR VR 180

This video is VR 180 3D, best viewed in a VR headset such as the Oculus Quest 2.

Please subscribe :) youtube.com/geoffmobile

In this video, Geoff from geoffmobile.com from Downtown Vancouver to southbound on Oak Street.

Recorded March 19 2021.

The stabilization setting I used in Vuze XR Studio is “Shake” only, not “Horizon”. When I used “Horizon and Shake” the horizon became incorrect as the motion of the car threw off the Horizon levelling.

This video illustrates the limitations of the Youtube encoding format for H.264 videos when watched in VR. When the car stops moving, the image becomes very clear and realistic. But when the car is in motion, the video becomes blocky and unclear. That is because after uploading my video to Youtube, it gets transcoded into a smaller more compressed file, and this file doesn’t have a high enough bitrate to keep up with the rapidly changing image when the vehicle is moving.

This was recorded in 3D 180 VR using the Vuze XR – a 180 3D VR camera.

Audio for this video is the audio from the car, where I was listening to the book “Designing Your Work Life” by Bill Burnett via text-to-speech.
