How To Prepare Brown Rice

To 2¼ cups boiling water add 1 tablespoon butter and ½ teaspoon salt (if desired). Pour in 1 cup Doguet’s Brown Rice and reduce to low heat. Simmer in covered pan for 30-40 minutes.

Preparation Tips:

  • Measure the amounts of rice and liquid.
  • Time accurately.
  • Keep lid on tightly during cooking to prevent steam from escaping.
  • If rice is not quite tender or if liquid is not absorbed, cook 2 to 4 minutes longer.
  • If cooked rice is crunchy, add additional liquid, cover tightly and cook until grains are tender.
  • If more separate grains are desirable, sauté rice in a small amount of butter before cooking, then add liquid and cook as directed.

How To Reheat Rice

  • Keep plenty of cooked rice on hand for quick & easy recipes.
  • For each cup of cooked rice, add 2 tablespoons liquid.
  • Cover and heat on top of range or in oven until heated through (about 5 minutes).
  • In a microwave oven, cover and cook on HIGH about 1 minute per cup.
  • Frozen rice may be cooked 2 minutes on HIGH power for each cup. Fluff with fork.

Rice Storage Tips

Cooked Rice, when not eaten immediately, should be cooled quickly. To store cooked rice, place in shallow container, cover, and place in refrigerator. Cooked rice may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Uncooked Milled Rice (white, parboiled or pre-cooked) will keep almost indefinitely on the pantry shelf. Once opened, rice should be stored in a tightly- closed container that keeps out dust, moisture and other contaminants.

Uncooked Brown Rice has a limited shelf life of approximately 6 months because of the oil in the bran layer. Refrigerator storage is recommended for longer shelf life.
