After realizing there could be another way of cooking perfect brown rice, I decided to search the web. Lo and behold, I found exactly what I needed!!! Check it out here: Pinch My Salt and Saveur.
This is what I call a brilliant, unconventional method of cooking brown rice! I love it! This is the only way I cook brown rice now. I like the suggestion from Pinch My Salt to reduce the amount of water vs. the Saveur recipe. It totally works!!
water (use about four cups of water for every one cup of rice)
Bring water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. When water boils, add the rice, stir it once.
Turn heat to medium and boil, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
After 30 minutes, remove from heat and pour the rice into a strainer over the sink.
Let the rice drain for 10 seconds, then return it to the pot.
After ten minutes, uncover rice, fluff with a fork, and season with salt to taste.
