It took me a while to get around to trying this method, but now that I finally have, I will be adopting it as my go-to method for making rice. (I got this from Saveur)

Perfect Brown Rice

1 C brown rice (short, medium, or long-grain)
Salt to taste

Rinse rice in a strainer under cold running water for 30 seconds. Bring 12 cups water to a boil in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid over high heat. Add the rice, stir it once, and boil, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Pour the rice into a strainer over the sink.

Let the rice drain for 10 seconds, then return it to the pot, off the heat. Cover the pot and set it aside to allow the rice to steam for 10 minutes. Uncover the rice, fluff with a fork, and season with salt.
