You are so right about the rice being perfect! I doubled the recipe and used 4 tbsp of kosher salt in the water, together with 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder. I followed your instructions exactly and even though it seemed that the rice wasn't quite ready when I drained it, it was perfectly cooked 10 minutes later, as your instructions say. I love the fact that no fat is used to make this rice. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I have avoided making brown rice for decades because the one time I tried to make it (literally DECADES ago), it took forever and was gummy. But this works! I am delighted with the result. Who'd a thought. :-)

wow it worked! Usually I have a little burnt on the bottom of my brown rice. I tossed in some toasted Sesame Seeds for Asian flare. Made for ZWT6 for Looney Spoon Phoodies :)

Wow, I can't tell you how glad I am to have found this! I adore brown rice, but have often avoided fried rice and pilaf dishes because I can never get the texture right. This made PERFECT rice for frying! Thanks so much for posting; I know I will revisit this often. Made for the Mischief Makers, ZWT 6!

I was worried about making this recipe because of the unusual cooking method. I'm glad I tried it because it turned out great! It was exactly like the brown rice I get at Chinese restaurants!
