Rice!!! We love rice at our house!!! No1here perfected a method of cooking rice that always comes out perfect and always has the best texture!!! So, here goes.... Most importantly, we only use Uncle Ben's Original Converted Long Grain Rice - no minute rice or boil-in-a-bag in this house!!! We use the measurements off the back of the box - but our secret is in how we cook it. So, we first figure out how many servings we want and get the right amount of water, salt, and butter and put it on to boil. Once it starts boiling we put in the rice and let it boil with the lid off for 10 minutes. I suggest setting a timer! Then we turn our heat down on low, put the lid on and cook for another 15 minutes. Then turn the heat off and let it sit for 5 minutes. There you go! It's so simple, but yet better than any other set of directions we've seen out there. I hope you try our method and if you do, let me know how it goes!
