How To Cook Brown Rice

The secret to cooking perfect brown rice lies in getting the water to brown rice ratio correct. Once you get that correct, it’s only a matter of turning off the heat when the rice is done.

The Method

The method I use to cook perfect brown rice every time is called the absorption method. I find it is the easiest and most consistent way to cook brown rice, and it eliminates the guesswork. So, what is the water to rice cooking ratio?

I have found the best results with 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water.

Instructions

  1. Put 1 cup brown rice and 2 cups water in a saucepan with lid.
  2. When water starts to boil, turn heat down to a simmer, and cover.
  3. Simmer for 30 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed and there is no water standing at the bottom of the pan.
  4. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Serve.

Perfect rice every time.
