Recipe

Brown rice is a versatile side dish that pairs well with almost any meal, but unfortunately it can be really difficult to make. Seriously I made either mushy or hard rice for the longest time until I learned this cooking method. It works best for short or medium grain brown rice and will help you make perfect rice every time. Planning on saving leftovers? Instead of leaving the leftovers in the pan to keep cooking, spread the rice out on a flat surface to cool more quickly. Then toss with a touch of oil before storing so it stays fluffy.

Notes

This works best for short or medium grain rice. Long grain rice may require more cooking time and water. You can use chicken or vegetable broth instead of water to infuse more flavor.
