Brown rice takes longer to cook than brown rice, which can make it hard to get right if you're not used to preparing it. Instead of using a rice cooker or pot, consider baking the rice with water and butter to encourage it to absorb precisely the amount of water needed.
The recipe comes from household weblog One Good Thing by Jillee, who adapted it from Cooks Illustrated magazine. Preheat your oven to 190°C while you fill a 22 x 33 baking dish with three cups of brown rice and add 36g of butter. Bring four and ⅔ cup of water to boil, stir in a teaspoon of salt and pour that over the rice and butter. Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake for one hour. After the hour, remove the dish from the oven, fluff up the rice with a fork, recover and give it 10 minutes to rest.
Brown rice has a lot of health benefits compared to white rice and many want to add it to their diet. Whether you use the baking method or one of the others we've covered, consider giving it a try.
