I have never been a person to like brown rice but this changed my mind. I loved it! I made 1/2 of the recipe and it turned out perfect!

Loved this:) I cut recipe in half- should have made the full amount because we could have eaten every bit!! I had Swanson Thai flavor chicken broth in the cupboard so I used that. Thanks Kittencal- this will be a regular recipe here!

Kittencal hits another home run! This simple recipe is my new go to for brown rice. It actually is a Pilaf recipe. I was worried about the scarcity of water, but it turned out perfectly, light, fluffy, and flavorsome. I used a Corningware casserole dish. Perfect!

I got some Red Cargo Rice and didn't know how to cook it, but figuring it's similar to brown rice I tried this. It worked really well, didn't come out gummy or anything. Now if I could just figure out how to make it taste better lol.

Yummy! I love brown rice but have not had the best of luck cooking it with great results. This turned out perfect - I'm thrilled. I followed the recipe exactly. I will be making this recipe many more times. Thank you!!

This rice turned out fantastic. I've never prepared brown rice before, but always heard it was tedious to do over the stove. Now I never even have to try! I'll be using this method often. Thanks!

Another great recipe Kittencal! My husband likes the idea of eating brown rice, since it's healthier but it can be difficult to prepare. This turned out perfectly & it had a nice flavor. I will 'make again!'

This was fantastic. I've always had problems with the rice being under done, and frankly, not very tasty. This is an excellent base for what ever your needs, I've used it with Asian dishes as well as a side for steak and tomato gravy. I can't recommend this enough.

I was about to give up on brown rice. I've tried to make it twice and I never cooked it long enough or I had lots of liquid and still crunchy grains. This was PERFECT! It made the whole house smell great. I didn't have a bay leaf and used Vegeta for my seasoning salt, using only 1 tsp as Vegeta can be rather salty. The rice was (is) so yummy! Thanks!
