  • Yield : 3 cups
  • Prep Time : 0m
  • Cook Time : 55m
  • Ready In : 0m


  • 1 cup short grain brown rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (2-inch) strip lemon or orange zest
  • Kosher salt


Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan with a tight fitting lid, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover, and cook for 50 minutes. Please don't lift the lid to give a peek or stir or the rice will not cook evenly.

Step 2

Remove pan from the heat and let the rice sit, covered, for 10 minutes, once again, no peeking. Fluff with a fork and serve.
