Alton Brown's Baked Brown Rice

Alton Brown's Baked Brown Rice created by ChefLee

This recipe comes from Alton Brown and it's the only way we have rice anymore. My servings are quite a bit smaller than his, though! You can use chicken or veggie broth in place of the water, or add herbs and spices.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • Boil the water and add the butter and salt. Stir to dissolve salt and melt butter.
  • Place the rice in an 8" casserole dish. Pour the boiling water mixture over the rice and stir.
  • Cover with foil and bake on the middle rack for 1 hour.
  • Fluff with fork and serve.
  • This rice also refrigerates and reheats fairly well, but it's best freshly made.

    WORLD-CHANGING recipe!! At least, it rocked THIS rice-impaired cook. I've had trouble with stovetop rice cooking forever, and didn't want another appliance in the house (ergo, no rice cooker). But THIS is easy, fool-proof, and I've made it several times now. I DO add a bay leaf and I DO use a dab of a gooey stock base to flavor before it's done. But the texture and the method are easy/perfect as is. I'll never cook rice any other way again. :)

    I am going to be using brown basmati rice. I noticed that unlike other recipes, there is no mention of repeated rinsing of the brown rice until the water is clear. Is this a step I should omit? Thanks, in advance.

    the is a method on beans in oven from thekitchn but it is at 325* - wondering if the rice can cook along with it for extended period of time or do i need to cook the beans then increase temperature to 375* for rice?
