    Sharon123's Note:

    This is how I love my brown rice. I always use short grain rice, adding about 1/2 cup more water than called for. With a splash of soy sauce, I'm in heaven!

      This is a very nice way to have rice. I liked the flavor and the only thing I might do differently is to add just a little more scallons. I used long grain rice and used 2 cups of water and the rice was perfectly tender.

      What a great and easy recipe. I follow the directions this time but next time I make it I'll try a low-salt chicken broth for more flavor. Thanks for a great recipe I'll add to my rotation.

      This is a great rice to have with oriental cuisine. I made this to go with Chinese Lemon Chicken. Added 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and then allowed everyone to add additional to suit their taste. Definitely a winning recipe.
