truly perfect brown rice

this recipe comes from the brilliant alton brown. it produces absolute perfect brown rice and the first time i made it this way i did a little dance it was so good. i highly recommend it over the traditional stovetop method.

1 1/2 c. brown rice (i like nishiki but of course any will do)
2 1/2 c. water
1 T. butter
1 t. salt

preheat oven to 375. put the rice in an 8'' square pan or any casserole dish of relatively the same size. bring water, butter, and salt just to a boil. once it boils, pour it over the rice. stir and cover tightly. bake for 1 hour.

this is a good time to use your electric kettle to boil the water. it makes the process super quick and i just pour the boiling water over the rice/butter/salt in the casserole dish. alton also introduced me to making hard boiled eggs in the electric kettle, which i also believe to be true genius. his other method, if you want to do a dozen or more eggs at a time, is to use the oven. this works perfectly as well. long live alton brown!


  • Alton Brown makes me feel funny, in a good way. I told Ben that men who cook are sexy. So he went and made himself a sandwich.

    Alton Brown had an Airstream up for sale on Ebay a couple years ago. I wanted to buy it. I think he filmed the roast beef episode in it. That would've been hella cool.
