Steamed Rice


Steamed Rice

Steamed rice can be a side dish or developed into a main dish.  We have cooked enough rice at our house that we have learned how to have a perfect boiler of rice each time that we cook it.  It helps that we have had input from my Mother.  For our lunch this past Sunday, Phillip cooked 2 cups of rice in 5 cups of water.  The rice was perfect and went so well with the country fried pork chops and gravy.  After following this recipe, I hope your rice always comes out perfect, too.

Steamed Rice

5 cups of water
2 cups of rice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 stick of butter

Bring 5 cups of water to a boil in a large boiler.  Add rice, salt, and butter.  For the first 5 minutes, stir several times.  Next, reduce the heat to low.  Cover with a lid and set a timer for 20 min.  Your rice should be done when the timer alarms.  I always remove a spoonful of rice and check to be certain that the rice is done.
