We’re so obsessed with steamed rice, we don’t even realize that it’s a terrible idea.
We eat it all the time, but when we cook it we end up with this weird, gelatinous substance that looks like rice and is actually just steamed water.
We’re not a big fan of it.
But we did a little research, and found that Uncle Ben’s steamed version of rice was a great way to cook it for dinner.
I like it so much that I bought him one and made my own.
Prepare the rice by steaming it on low for about a minute and then putting it in a medium-sized pot with enough water to cover it by one inch.
Add a few tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper.
Cover and bring to a boil.
When the rice begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it reaches about the right temperature for steaming.
Remove from heat and let cool.
If you’re cooking a big pot of rice, it might take about five minutes to reach the right consistency.
If it’s just a little bit of rice or a little thicker, you can take a bite to get a good texture.
While the rice is cooking, prepare the filling.
Mix together the ground rice, ground turkey, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
To serve, dip a thin slice of the rice into the filling and top with shredded cabbage, mushrooms, or green onions.
