I have used this method several times now and the rice comes out perfect. Even the picky husband likes it!

I made this yesterday afternoon and everyone enjoyed the fluffy texture of the rice! This beat any brown rice that I cook on the stove top by a mile!

Easy oven brown rice was delish, my kids had the brown rice for the first time they loved it, thank for this recipe it is delicious.

I haven't tried the recipe this way. But I have a rice cooker and I already put butter in the rice so I wouldn't have to it this way.But if a large quantity is needed,I might.
