Thumbs up thanks everyone

I finally hit gold tonight. I was about to give up and just go with instant brown rice. I actually bought some at walmart just in case everything went bad. I was quite discouraged after last night. So i was fixing Key West Marinated chicken with mango salsa and i was going to give it one more go. This time i used 2 Cups Beef broth plus a little seasonings (oregeno & garlic). I brought it to a boil and threw 1 cup of rice in. I convered and tried to raise the temperature slightly. I then set the time for 55 minutes...yes 55 minutes. When 55 minutes came around i could still see a little bit of steam coming out of the lid (its tight fitting but still a little bit of steam can escape). Steam = some water still left. So i turned it to medium low for about 3 minutes. I then turned off the heat and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and it turned out perfectly :). I can say this DANG brown rice is hard to get right but once you got it you got it :).

My tried and true way for brown rice is use a pan, bring your liquid to a boil, then put your rice in. Put a little oil or butter in with it to keep it from boiling over. Cover and simmer 45 minutes. Don't ever lift the lid, it makes the rice sticky and you lose heat. I don't soak mine first.
My guess as to what went wrong is that the liquid was not at a full boil and then it did not cook long enough. otherwise your rice would have been cooked in the "soup".

Also, just trying to be helpful, I only saw 2 cups and 4 T of liquid listed, to 2 cups of rice. Just double checking that your ratio was right?
