Mister and I have a heck of a time cooking brown rice. It seems like every time we follow the package directions to a tee, our rice always turns out crunchy. We’ve compensated by adding more water to the pot but we still can’t seem to find the perfect combination. Now, I may be the only Asian in the world who doesn’t have a rice cooker (don’t judge me), but I can conquer white rice without any problems. I don’t know what it is about brown rice that gives us issues, but it does!
I finally tried a method of cooking brown rice that WORKS. I found this recipe on Skinny Taste (she mentions that she found this on Saveur). My rice wasn’t crunchy, or soggy, or burned… it was amazingly fluffy and perfectly cooked. I may never follow package directions again. Watch out world!
