Crock-pot Brown Rice | Slow Cooker Revolution

There are two slow cooker brown rice recipes in this post.



Crock-pot No-Fuss Brown Rice
Makes 6 servings
Vegetable oil spray
2 cups long grain brown rice
1 Tbsp unsalted butter or vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups boiling water
Salt and pepper to taste


Notes:  Boil water first, then measure. Do not attempt on Low setting because the rice will become mushy. The prepared dish does not hold well on Warm setting.



Directions
Coat slow-cooker with vegetable oil spray.

Add rice, butter and 1/2 tsp salt to prepared slow-cooker; then, stir in boiling water and cover. Cook on High setting until rice is tender, about 2 hours.

Fluff rice with fork; then, season with salt and pepper to taste. Drape towel over top of slow-cooker and cover; let sit for 5 minutes before serving.     Back to Top

This recipe is from the Editors at America's Test Kitchen, Slow Cooker Revolution: One Test Kitchen, 30 Slow Cookers, 200 Amazing Recipes (Boston: Boston Common Press, 2011), 263.
