This is great! I used 2.5 cups plain white rice with 5 cups of water (that was all the rice I had). I rubbed the slow cooker with some olive oil, rinsed the rice, and put the rice, water and salt in the slow cooker. I also added a cube and a half of organic chicken boullion. I stirred once near the beginning, but then forgot to do it again after. I almost left it in too long, I'll have to remember to set a timer next time. I had it in there for just over two hours. I will definately be doing this again, next time with more rice! Update: I have also made this with brown rice (following the water/rice ratio on the bag) and it worked perfectly! I find this method much better than my rice cooker.
An easy way to have rice ready to serve with your other crockpot meal.
This recipe needs to be rated. I just tryed it so I could rate it. Now I will make the Easy Fried Rice #26284 tomarrow. maybe this will be seen. I am happy I found this. Thank You
Very easy and nice. I followed WiGal and merserdees advice. I used 2 cups of Jasmine rice and 3 1/3 cups water. I added 1 tablespoon of cold butter along with one chicken bouillon cube. I stirred 3 times and mine was finished in 1 1/2 hours on high. I sprayed my crock pot with cooking spray. Thanks Mirj for an easy way to make rice. I will use this again and again.
This is the next best thing to sliced bread! I cannot believe how awesome the rice turned out in a crockpot! I just had to try it! I tripled the recipe using Jasmine rice. I used a water ratio of 1 2/3 water to 1 cup rice; have been doing this for years and it always works for me. I did check on the rice periodically, and was worried until the final 1/2 hour. I will be making this again and again! Thanks so much, Mirj! Made for I Recommend Tag.
This recipe might work for small quantities, but it does not scale to the 4 cups referenced. It comes out mushy and unevenly cooked. Yuk. Glad I tested it before I needed to cook it for a crowd.
Don't stir it! You'll just break up the starch and get mush. it may stick a bit on the bottom a bit, i used 4c rice, 8c water, salt. brushed crockpot with peanut oil. and it took 2.5 hours. i may have let it go a bit longer too. don't bother checking at 2 hours, u will have water left and let all the heat out. but do check maybe 10 mins early. and re: sticky rice? it depends on what kind of rice you are using, some have more starch thsn others. here, u can actually buy long grain rice called sticky rice. its preferred for holding thise yummy asian sauces :-)
I am so happy I found this recipe! From now on I will make rice only in the slow cooker. It is so much more efficient than my microwave rice cooker. I used brown rice and used the rice/water ratio from the bag. The only issue I had, and that was my fault, I should have added a little less water because the crock pot generates steam/water and so my rice came out a bit more watery than I like, but that is easily solved. Thanks for the recipe!
I chopped some onion, celery, and mushrooms, added 2-12c water, a chicken bullion cube and some butter. I was ready ahead of time, so I turned it on low (and did not add the rice yet) After about an hour I added 1c of basmati rice and continued to cook on low. The rice was done in about 1 hr and 15 mins but I still had a lot of liquid left so I left the lid slightly off for the last 15 mins. After a total time of about 2 hrs, the rice began to get mushy. Next time I will use less water and watch to see if I need to add any near the end. This is an easy way to cook rice especially in a small crock pot.
This is delicious! I substituted garlic powder for salt and used 4 cups of rice with 3 cups of water. I even put butter on top of the finished dish. Came out awesome!
