Simple Charleston Gold Brown Rice

Charleston Gold brown rice—quite simply, the best brown rice that can drift onto your plate.

About 3 cups


30 minutes start to finish


Our Charleston Gold Brown brown rice has enough bounce and flavor to be staged with any number of outspoken dishes. Curries, smoky field peas and greens, wild game and duck, in seafood pilaus, and even humble rice and eggs (the central dish in the entire Carolina Gold Rice Kitchen)—all come to attention in its presence.

For this recipe, you will need a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan, a wooden spoon, and a fine-holed colander.

  1. Fill a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan three-fourths full of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the rice and salt and stir once or twice. Cover the pot halfway; reduce the heat to maintain a nice, civilized simmer; and cook until the rice is just tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Do not forcefully boil the rice! Drain in a fine-holed colander and shake the colander to remove all moisture. Serve hot.
