  • 3 cups convereted white rice Uncle Ben's converted white rice worked the best
  • 6 cups water optional: use chicken or beef stock instead
  • butter or cooking spray
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Coat the inside of your crock pot with butter or cooking spray.
  • Add the converted white rice and water to the crock pot. Be sure to measure exactly.
  • Cover the crock pot with the lid and cook on HIGH heat for 2-3 hours. You'll want to give a quick stir every 20-30 minutes so don't leave it to sit alone.
  • Once the water has been absorbed, and the rice is soft and fluffy, then the rice is done. Salt and pepper to taste.
