  • 1 cup short grain brown rice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter *or fat source of choice
  • 1 3/4 cup broth *chicken, beef or vegetable broth


  • Measure rice and rinse well in a fine mesh strainer. Let drain.
  • Place a 9-10 inch stainless steel frying pan (with accompanying glass lid) on high heat on a medium sized stovetop burner. Add butter and melt.
  • Once butter is melted immediately add rice and broth. Bring to a boil. Do not stir rice.
  • Once boiling, cover rice with glass lid and lower temperature down to lowest heat. Let cook until all liquid has absorbed, about 45 mins. You will know the liquid has been absorbed once it no longer bubbles. It is best to let the rice cook 5 mins past that point.
  • Take off heat and let sit covered for an addittional 10 mins. Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.
