How to Make Brown Rice in your Crock Pot

Ever wondered if you can make Brown Rice in your slow cooker?  You can! 


This recipe makes about 6 cups of brown rice. Cooked brown rice also freezes well in individual portions. I made this in my 7 quart slow cooker. For even heating, I would recommend that this would work best in a 6 quart or larger slow cooker.

Ingredients:
2 Cups of Brown Rice
4 Cups of Hot Water
Non-Stick Spray

Directions:
(1) Spray the inside of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray; i.e. Pam
(2) Add 4 cups of hot tap water
(3) Turn your slow cooker to high with the lid on and let the water heat up for 30 minutes to an hour.
(4) Add the brown rice and Cook on high for 1 hour 30 minutes. Check for doneness.
(5) Remove the rice immediately so it doesn't turn mushy.

You can also make this without pre-heating the water. To do this, just use hot tap water, but increase the cook time to 3 hours and stir the rice 1/2 way through cooking.

Every Slow Cooker heats differently, you may have to play around with the exact cooking time that works best for yours.

    1. Rice is very forgiving. It freezes and reheats well. Just make sure it has enough moisture.
