From The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook. The authors call for a 6 cup rice cooker, I've had no problems with my 3 cup model. Serve this as a main dish for 4, or a side dish for 6.

  1. Rinse the rice well in a fine strainer.
  2. Coat the rice bowl with cooking spray.
  3. Add the drained rice, sausage, and onions to the rice bowl.
  4. Add the water, stir just to combine.
  5. Cook on the regular white rice cycle.
  6. When the machine switches to keep warm, let it steam for 15 minutes.
  7. Fluff the rice with a plastic rice paddle, or wooden spoon.
  8. Place in a serving dish, and garnish with the cilantro and the sesame seeds.

This is one of my favorite things in the world. However, I just cut up the sausage and throw it in the rice cooker with the rice. Nothing else and it's still great!

We enjoyed this simple dish -- so easy too! The changes I made was using smoked turkey sausage (I would love to try this with Chinese sausage someday though), skipping the garnish (forgot both) but added 1/2 package of frozen peas near the end of the cooking time. Thanks for sharing this easy dish which we all enjoyed!
