I wanted a rice recipe that was easy and relatively quick to make brown rice more tasty. This is what I came up with. :-) I've used long-grain brown rice and brown basmati rice for this, but you could also use white rice. Great for any meal you would use rice in.

  1. Melt butter in skillet and sauté onions until softened and lightly browned. Add garlic, sauté 1 minute.
  2. Add brown sugar and sauté until caramelized-looking, 3-4 minutes.
  3. Mix rice, broth and onion mixture and cook in rice cooker.
  4. Note: I like my rice slightly crunchy and not soggy so if you like yours softer add 1/4- 1/2 cup of extra broth.
