Steamed White Rice

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Ted8332

I'm always amazed at how many people ask me "How do you get your rice so perfect?" Martin Yan told me! Not personally, of course. That would've been much cooler, though. Anyways, no one can ever remember what I told them, so I'm posting it here.

This rice saved my marriage.


  1. Put the rice in a 3 quart pot or saucepan with a tight fitting lid (don't put the lid on yet!) and pour in the water.
  2. Bring to a boil, and cook until the surface looks "cratery" (like the surface of hot lava or something).
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for about ten minutes, till the water is gone.
  4. Let rice stand for a minute or two, then remove the lid, fluff the rice, and serve!
