  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon butter


For each cup of uncooked rice (1 cup raw = 3 cups cooked), add 2 cups cold water to a saucepan with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar, and 1 tablespoon butter. All this goes in at once. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until all liquid evaporates and the rice is tender. 20 to 30 minutes.

    The vinegar does keep the rice from sticking. I suggest using a sweet rice wine vinegar to make the rice more sweet in flavor.

    The white vinegar keeps the rice from becoming too sticky and clumping together.

    White Vinegar....hmmm? Wonder why? Haven't heard of adding that when cooking rice before.
