Microwave Brown Rice

I need to post this “recipe” for making brown rice in the microwave, in case I forget and can’t find it again. It comes out perfectly! I’ve tried making rice on the stove-top, in the crockpot, and one different microwave preparation, and they’ve all sucked! The stove-top method burns the rice and it all sticks to the pot, even with cooking spray! The crockpot method takes 4-6 hours and it also scorches the rice. The previous microwave method I used included too much water and the rice came out soggy and mushy. This microwave version is by far the best I’ve found and has made consistently great rice every time!

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon butter

Combine ingredients in 2-quart glass bowl (preferably with handle). Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until boiling. Stir. Continue microwaving on 50% power for 30 minutes. Fluff with fork.

Enjoy! Microwave Brown Rice
