Perfect Easy Microwave Rice

“I got this recipe with the cookbook that came with my first Microwave and I've been using it ever since! The rice comes out perfect every time. No muss, no fuss and can be served in the casserole dish you cooked it in. You can also use this method for brown rice but increase your cooking time a little.”

Directions

  1. Using a 2 quart casserole dish with lid, put rice, hot water, butter and salt in dish. Stir. (I put my casserole dish on a plate in the micro as sometimes the water boils over a little. Saves cleanup after).
  2. Cover, and microwave on high power 5 minutes. Stir with fork (careful watch the steam!)
  3. Cover and put back in microwave and cook on medium this time for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove lid (careful again!) and fluff with fork.
  5. Let stand 2-3 minutes.
  6. Serve.
