Steamed Brown Long-Grain Rice
- 1 1/2 cups uncooked brown long-grain rice
- 2 1/2 cups water, plus more for rinsing
Place the rice in a large bowl and fill the bowl with cold water. Mix the rice gently with your hand until the water is cloudy. Drain in a sieve and repeat 3 times or until the water is nearly clear. This will help remove the starch from the rice. Drain well.
Combine the rinsed rice and 2 1/2 cups of fresh cold water in the inner container of a rice cooker. Cook the rice according to the manufacturer's instructions until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 40 minutes.
Remove the inner container from the rice cooker and set aside for about 10 minutes. Uncover the rice and fluff it with a fork.
