    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a saucepan with a good fitting lid bring water, salt and butter if desired to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add rice and stir.
    3. 3
      Cover and reduce heat to medium low. You will know that your temperature is correct if a little steam is visible leaking from the lid. A lot of steam means your heat is too high.
    4. 4
      Cook for 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      DO NOT LIFT LID!
    6. 6
      The steam that is trapped inside the pan is what allows the rice to cook properly.
    7. 7
      Remove from heat and fluff with fork.
    8. 8
      Serve!

      I've banished the boil in the bag variety and retired my rice cooker, cos I've found Mama's method, tried & true! I've been making rice this way for so long, my apologies for not (thanking Mama, and) reviewing this recipe sooner. I have used this method with white rice and par-boiled with no problems (other than it's hard to put the fork down!) I usually make this with chicken broth in lieu of water, as my family loves it. Thank you.

      My beloved rice cooker broke and my husband didn't think I need to go to the expense of
      replacing it. I have not had a lot of luck with a pot. The rice was ususally too sticky.
      I followed this recipe exactly and it is HEAVEN! Thank you soooo much!!!

      Thanks so much for posting what the rice producers SHOULD have written on the bag! As I make it more and more, I am gaining confidence in the recipe and the rice is getting better!
