Easy Crock Pot Rice

Save your money on a rice cooker and make your rice in the crock pot! Check out this Easy Crock Pot Rice Recipe

I love having rice with meals.  Not only is it healthy but you can flavor it and mix things in to make it unique every day of the week.  I love my rice cooker, but in my pre-rice cooker days, this was my go to method for making rice.  I always seem to mess it up on the stove, but it comes out perfectly in the crock pot!

    I tried this just last Sunday when I had 20 people over for lunch. I made a total of 4 batches with 2 batches in both of my 6 qts crockpots. I did find out that it makes a huge difference how long it takes depending on your crockpot, one I had was an expensive one with a clamped down lid and that one got done much faster than the cheaper one I had. It all worked out, I just served out of the one first. Thanks for posting this, it sure was much easier than doing that much rice on the cook top.

    It worked! I did three cups of white, long grain rice and six of water in my 6 qt. cooker for exactly two hours (stirring once) and it’s perfect! Thanks so much for this!
