Recipe by KateL

Plain parboiled brown rice, from Kuhn Rikon's instruction manual. From my Kuhn Rikon instruction manual (15 psi pressure cooker). If you increase the amounts, do not exceed the 1/2 full mark on your pressure cooker pan. Kuhn Rikon strongly recommends cooking grains on LOW pressure (8 psi) so the rice won't burn on the bottom; it's more like steaming. I have made separate recipes for soaked brown rice and unsoaked brown rice, because there are differences between the rice:water ratios and cooking times. If you have a different brand cooker, please consult your manual for recommended cooking time. Personally, I was very disappointed by Uncle Ben's parboiled brown rice (and I grew up on Uncle Ben's Converted White Rice), but I love the nutty brown rice taste of premium brown rice (using one of the other recipes). Before you decide that you "hate" brown rice, be sure to try a premium brown rice.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup parboiled brown rice, picked over and rinsed and drained

Directions

  1. In pressure cooker, pour in water and bring it to a rolling boil.
  2. Pour in well-drained rice, stir well.
  3. Secure lid, and bring to LOW pressure (8 psi, 1 bar). Once pot has reached low pressure, adjust heat to stabilize at low pressure. (My stove runs hot for a simmer, so sometimes I stack an extra burner grate or I press the steam valve of my Kuhn Rikon p.c. lid with a wooden spoon to keep the pressure at 1 bar.) Once low pressure has been reached, begin timing for 6 minutes and cook for 6 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat. Let pressure reduce naturally (this will absorb some of the excess water, if any).
  5. Remove lid and serve.
