WOW!!! I typically make brown rice for my family because it's healthier than white, but despite me trying to convince my family that it tastes the same, I have always secretly loved white rice, until I tried this recipe that is. MMmmMMmmMMmm.... I just received my first pressure cooker for Christmas and wanted to give brown rice a try. I tried it the way the PC manual described on the steam setting, and thought it was pretty good, but then stumbled across this recipe. It is as everyone describes. DELICIOUS, creamy, risotto-like in texture (without being goopy or mushy), and perfectly cooked.

If you like a slightly drier rice, cut down on the water slightly and do make sure you let it naturally release the pressure for at least 10 minutes after the timer goes off, or else you'll end up with a bunch of water. If you want to do the quick release method for faster rice, I'd also recommend decreasing the water by about 1/4 - 1/3C, and increasing the cooking time to 20 minutes, but the texture won't be quite as good.

My husband and daughter were both convinced that this had to be white rice because of its amazing, fluffy, smooth consistency, until I showed them the empty bag of brown rice. I plan on making larger batches and freezing them to have on hand down the road. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Awesome! Best and quickest brown rice ever! I don't know if this is right but I started the timing as soon as the little thingy popped up on my pressure cooker. The first time I made it I just moved the cooker off of the stove and let it cool down on its own. It was perfect and almost like risotto!! Dang Good! The second time I cheated and let the steam out fast and it was too watery but after a few minutes on the stove it was totally edible. Can't stop eating this delicious brown rice! Oh yeah, I didn't add the Mrs. Dash or the pepper and I used Better Than Bullion NO Chicken Stock. What a find!

Best brown rice I have ever eaten! It is similar to risotto, just yummy! Didn't use the spice mix, but added powder bouillon (3 tsp). Thanks for this! My husband and 18 month son loved it too!
