Cook Rice on the Stove

Stove Cooked Rice Image
  1. Add rice and water or broth to a medium-size (2 to 3 quart) saucepan. See table below.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring once or twice.
  3. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and reduce heat to very low.
  4. Set a timer. Cook until tender; white rice 18 to 20 minutes, and brown rice 35 to 45 minutes.
  5. When the timer rings, remove lid to taste for doneness. If the rice is not tender or there is still some liquid in the pan, cover and cook 2 to 4 more minutes.
  6. When done, remove the lid and take the pan off the heat. Fluff the rice with a fork or slotted spoon and serve.
  7. Refrigerate or freeze any leftover rice within 2 hours
