Yeah, beerab. I've been making this recipe for over a year now though and it's been perfect every time. I hope you enjoy it.
We never even have white rice anymore.
You do have to cook white rice and brown rice differently momto3kitties, but it's been a while since I made white rice so I can't remember how I did it. haha But it's much easier. Try just following the recipe on the package for white rice. Or see if Alton Brown has a white rice recipe. I'm sure he does. (No. I don't work for him, I just think he's great. ^_^)
I DO know that brown rice has to cook longer. That's why it's so easy to mess up. The reason Alton's recipe works is because you're hitting it with a high yet steady and EVEN (thanks to the oven) heat over a long period of time.
