I stopped cooking rice on the stove years ago. I use a microwave, which frees up burners, and doesn't require watching, particularly during holidays. I use the same ingredients with 1 T. butter added. Put all in microwave safe bowl, stir, cover, and microwave at 50% power for 20 minutes.Stir, recover, and let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Perfect rice, every time.
