Wendy asks: What are your tips for making perfect brown rice?


I soak my brown rice in broth and cook it in broth

We use a big fry pan with a see through lid. Our pan has finger grips on opposite sides and the lid fits tight. That way you can see exactly how it's cooking and you don't want to take the lid off even once after you have started the simmer.

not a tip,a question.. I make wonderful white rice in a Donabe pot, is ther a way to make brown rice in one?

I just tried this in my rice cooker and the rice turned out beyond mushy. Luckily, I was putting saucy food over it so it didn't matter so much, but I would definitely reduce the amount of water here.

After 45 minutes cooking, do you check rice for doneness or take off heat with lid on for another 5 minutes before checking for doneness?

This is definitaly NOT how to make brown rice. Followed the directions to a tee, came out with rice that was better suited for mashing than anything else. Had a plate of soggy goo for dinner.

Use a rice cooker with a brown rice feature.

At high altitude 5500+ I add a little more liquid, about 1/4 cup for the above recipe, and cook it 5 minutes longer, I get great results!
