    It’s not my first time cooking rice on the stovetop, but I’ve never made it like this and it never comes out so perfectly and so fast! It was soft but not mushy, it had a bit of bite but it wasn’t crunchy, and it was full of flavor. I’ll be cooking my rice this way from now on.

    My version of the recipe did not turn out as well as I would have liked, likely more user error. For me the Rice seem done but was still hard and stuck to the bottom of my pan. Gave four stars as I'm sure it just needs more practice and I'm looking forward to trying again.

    I have never been good at making rice.. Every time I've made rice it was mush. This was really easy though and it turned out great!!!

    Great! I would make it all over again. The butter was a great touch. I never would've thought to add that before water
