PERFECT Brown Rice EVERY TIME!

From saveur.com

I had never made brown rice before…ever.

But I HAD heard that it was very difficult to get right. That was a little scary, considering I already struggle with white rice!

Since I was starting the Daniel Fast, I knew I should probably look into how to cook brown rice.

You can read about my Daniel Fast at these posts:

Why am I doing the Daniel Fast?

The Beginning of My Daniel Fast

So I used good ol’ trusty Google, and typed in, “How to cook perfect brown rice”…great search, right? I mean, I didn’t want just mediocre rice; I needed something tried and proven to be perfect!

Thankfully, I wasn’t the only one who felt that way. And I did find How to Cook Perfect Brown Rice, by Nicole on pinchmysalt.com.

So I followed the directions, step-by-step, and guess what?!? It WAS perfect!! I was SO excited! I’ve made it several times since, and it hasn’t failed me! (…except for the one time I didn’t follow the directions properly)

The only thing I had a little bit of difficulty with was reading the directions all in one paragraph, since I love being able to see each step laid out. So I decided to re-post it here.

**I do not take ANY credit for these directions, I did NOT write them!**
***Although I did simplify and modify some of it for easier readability!***


 

Directions for perfect brown rice

You will need…

brown rice
water –  4 cups of water for every cup of rice
salt – to taste

Steps:

  2. When water boils, add the rice, stir it once.
  3. Turn heat to medium and boil, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. After 30 minutes, drain the water.
  5. Let the rice drain for 10 seconds, then return it to the pot, off the heat (this is the part I forgot that one time…make sure for this step you keep it OFF THE HEAT!)
  6. Immediately cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and set it aside to allow the rice to steam for 10 minutes .
  7. After ten minutes, uncover rice, fluff with a fork, and season with salt to taste.
