Brown rice, because it contains the brown hull that is removed to form white rice, takes longer to cook so many people who make great white rice can not properly make brown rice. Instead of using a pot on your range, consider baking the rice with water and butter to encourage the rice to absorb precisely the amount of water needed for perfect cooked brown rice.
The recipe comes from household weblog One Good Thing by Jillee, who adapted it from Cooks Illustrated magazine. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit while you fill a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish with 3 cups of brown rice and add 4 pats of butter. Bring four and ⅔ cup of water to boil, stir in a teaspoon of salt, and pour that over the rice and butter. Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake for one hour. After the hour, remove the dish from the oven, fluff up the rice with a fork, recover, and give it ten minutes to rest.
Brown rice has a lot of health benefits compared to white rice and many want to add it to their diet. Whether you use the baking method or one of the others we’ve covered, consider giving it a try.
