    Default What are some of the ways YOU make rice?

    Make perfect brown rice every time! Never gummy. You can easily substitute it in recipes calling for rice without your family noticing!

    3 cups brown rice
    2 eggs
    6 cups water
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    Preheat oven to 350*.
    Saute brown rice with 2 eggs, stirring constantly over medium heat until mixture is dry.

    Add water and oil and pour into deep larger baking dish.
    Bake at 350* for one hour.
    DO NOT STIR!
    DO NOT POKE!
    DO NOT DISTURB!

    Just LOOK at the rice after 30 minutes,and cover with foil at that time.

    Makes 8 servings

    I use a rice cooker or steamer. Then I never have to worry about ruining it. I like brown rice, but no one else here does, so it's usually white rice.

    I add chicken or beef flavoring or make fried rice usually.

    My rice cooker is one of my favorite appliances.

    The recipe looks good and simple. I'll have to give it a try.

    Does the rice cooker take a lot of time to cook rice?

    I don't think so. I think it's slightly slower than stovetop, but not by much.

    I start my rice as I'm prepping my meal and by the time my meal is cooked, the rice is done and waiting. It stays hot because it has a lid on it. Some cookers have warmers on it, but I don't need anything added or I'll goof up my rice. rofl Trust me on that one. lol

    I'd say it takes about 20-25 minutes to cook. I like that it's easy to clean and I don't have to watch over it.

    I can make rice on the stovetop, but it seemed my rice wasn't consistently perfect. Sometimes I didn't add enough water or sometimes too much. I sometimes would burn the bottom. ugh

    There are some really inexpensive rice cookers. I've seen them under $20.

    I burned rice once so bad in a pan. My mom then sent me the rice cooker. One of my favorite gifts from her.

    I use my 10 cup rice cooker all the time. The kids and I are rice fanatics! I also will do a pilaf style rice on the stove with rice and anglehair pasta broken up and an chopped onion sauteed in butter. Add chicken broth to that to cover rice about 1 inch, cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for about 30 minutes.

    I do this too. We call it homemade rice a roni. I'll also saute finely chopped carrots and celery and onion with it too. I just don't cook it as long as you do.
