Can I Steam instead of parboiling?

Hi All,

If a recipe says to parboil something, can I just steam it instead? For instance, like roasted potatoes, a lot of recipes have the potatoes parboiled in water first before finishing them in an oven. Instead of doing that, is it ok to pop them in a steamer?

My rice cooker has a steamer function and its a lot faster and easier to use that instead of boiling water etc...

Thanks for reading!
