Why didn't my rice cook?
Okay, I was trying to make something last night, and it didn't quite turn out, and I am not sure why.
I was putting together a sort of stew, I guess, with no recipe. In the pan, I cooked some onions, garlic, and red pepper. I added a can of tomatoes (with the juices), and brought it to boiling; then I added some brown rice. I know brown rice takes a long time to cook, so I reduced the heat to a low simmer, covered it, and left it for 45 minutes. The rice was still practically raw!
I thought that this would work. I left it on for another 15 minutes, and it didn't really get any better.
I don't know-- is this just a matter of more time, or am I completely off my rocker thinking that this should cook the brown rice? I kept everything, so if I can just continue heating it, I'll do so tonight, but I am trying to diagnose where I went wrong.
