The Secret To Making The Best Rice

Plain steamed rice has a pretty neutral flavor, which is part of what makes it such a versatile food. When served as a side dish or used as a meal’s starchy base, people tend to focus more on adding flavor after the rice has been cooked.

That’s what I did too, until I discovered that the secret to making the best tasting rice lies in what you add to it before you’ve cooked it!

The big secret is cooking rice in chicken broth instead of water. Changing the cooking liquid doesn’t affect how the rice cooks, but it does have a huge effect on the flavor! The savory flavors of the stock get infused into the finished rice, making it much more flavorful than rice cooked in plain water. How simple is that?

But chicken broth isn’t the only way to punch up the flavor of your rice. You can also use chicken stock, vegetable broth or stock, or any other kind of broth or stock you like. If you don’t usually keep broths or stocks on hand, it’s easy to whip some up using a bouillon base like Better Than Bouillon.
