Most of us that have tried to make a nice fluffy and moist brown rice at home have crashed and burned. It's dry or the texture is bleckh, not right.
I was making my at home favorite brown rice salad the other night (basically a chopped Romaine salad with onions, red pepper, some type of protein and brown rice with a nice dressing) and this time I wanted the rice to be fluffy, moist, and tasty.
I did a search on line and it turns out a few folks have saved me lots of time and heartache to perfect this lovely grain!
I used a recipe from Pinch My Salt that they modified from Saveur.com and I have to say it WORKED LIKE A CHARM!!! We ate every single bite, and it was truly the brown rice that made the dish.
Without further adieu:
The PERFECT BROWN RICE at Home!
Ingredients: *Brown Rice *Water - at least four cups of water for every cup of rice *Salt to taste.
To Do: *Rinse rice in a strainer under cold running water for 30 seconds & swirl the rice around in your hand. *Bring water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. *When water is boiling, add the rice, stir it once (I also salted my water) *Turn heat to a medium boil and leave rice uncovered for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. *After 30 minutes, pour the rice into a strainer over the sink. *Let the rice drain out the water for 10 seconds then return it to the pot and set aside OFF OF THE HEAT. *Immediately over the pot with a tight fitting lid and set aside to allow the rice to steam for 10 minutes. *After 10 minutes, uncover rice, fluff with a for, season to taste.
