Long Grain Brown Rice Cooking Instructions
- of course have a vocabulary of their own: bring to a boil, simmer, remove from heat, a heaping tablespoon. You’d go crazy thumbing through a dictionary just to make sense of one recipe.
- paper made with the machine direction of the fibers in the longest dimension of the sheet.
- The fibres in paper naturally take up an alignment roughly parallel to the direction of travel of the web on the papermachine; this becomes the grain direction. Papers are normally stocked in long grain form, short grain being supplied to a special order.
- Unpolished rice with only the husk of the grain removed
- unpolished rice retaining the yellowish-brown outer layer
- Brown rice (or "hulled rice") is unmilled or partly milled rice, a kind of whole, natural grain. It has a mild nutty flavor, is chewier and more nutritious than white rice, and becomes rancid much more quickly. Any rice, including long-grain, short-grain, or sticky rice, may be eaten as brown rice.
- is the most balanced of all the whole grains and is also gluten free. Unpolished whole natural brown rice is higher in minerals, protein and flavor than white rice.

Grease a baking dish with olive oil and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, and add the onion. Stir often and cook until tender, five to eight minutes, then add the garlic, summer squash, red pepper and some salt. Turn the heat up and cook for a few more minutes. Add freshly ground pepper, taste and adjust salt. Stir in the parsley, and remove from the heat. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, salt, pepper and milk. Stir in the rice, thyme, sauteed squash mix and the cheeses and pour into the baking dish. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until nicely browned on the top and edges. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for at least 10 minutes before serving, or allow to cool. The gratin is good hot, warm or at room temperature. For the Rice Pilaf In a pinch, if you are out of space, you can combine all ingredients in a rice cooker and turn on. Otherwise, cook bay leaves in oil in a 4 quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, turning over occasionally, until leaves are lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until translucent, about 30 seconds. Add rice, salt, carrots, peas and black pepper and cook, stirring gently to avoid breaking bay leaves, 1 minute. Add water or broth and bring to a full boil, uncovered, over high heat. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, then reduce heat to low and simmer until water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, undisturbed, 5 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and discard bay leaves. For the Steak Cut the meat into 10 equal portions. Work the butter with a paddle or wooden spoon to soften. Season the beef with salt. Spread one side of each steak with the softened butter. Coat the buttered side of the steaks with the cracked black pepper. (don’t go too crazy with the pepper). Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and sear the pepper side of the steaks. Flip over and cook to medium/rare. Remove from pan and keep in a warm place while you prepare the sauce. For the Sauce In a medium saute pan add the oil and the shallots and cook over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Cook for a few minutes and then carefully add the cognac. Flambe the cognac and cook for a minute, then add the red wine and cook until reduced by half. Add the glace de viande and cook until melted. Stir in the mustard and mix to dissolve. Stir in the cream. Scald, then remove from heat and whisk in the butter. Season with salt and pepper.

Reproducing the Chronicle's recipe below...I used ground chicken, and I also bought rice flour and skipped the part about toasting and grinding the rice into powder. I'm not 100% sure what that ingredient added to the mix so I might omit in the future. I will say that I think the basic technique is a great base for a chicken salad. I would have liked a bit more "dressing" - this is intended to be a drier salad. I also may not have executed it quite right: I love Thai food but don't try to cook it very often! Feel free to add other fresh vegetables to the pile of greens, such as cooked green beans or thinly sliced carrots. * 2 tablespoons uncooked jasmine rice * 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken meat or ground chicken * -- Kosher salt * 2 tablespoons vegetable oil * 1/2 cup minced cilantro * 1/2 cup finely minced fresh mint * 4 green onions, thinly sliced, + 2 green onions for garnish * 1/4 cup finely minced red onion or shallots * -- Juice of 3 limes * 2 teaspoons ground California chile, ground Thai chile to taste, or 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (see Note) * 1 small head green leaf or butter lettuce, leaves separated, washed and dried * 4 Persian cucumbers or about 1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced on the bias Instructions: Place the rice in a frying pan over medium-low heat and toast, shaking occasionally, until light golden, about 7-10 minutes. Cool, then grind to a powder in a spice grinder, clean coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. Meanwhile, if using chicken pieces, slice against the grain then chop into small, 1/4-inch pieces. Season well with salt, using your hands to incorporate the seasoning. Heat a wok or large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, then add the oil. When it's hot, add the chicken, and cook until done, about 5 minutes, stirring only occasionally so it browns. Remove chicken from the pan, leaving as much oil behind as you can. Place chicken in a medium bowl with the rice powder, cilantro, mint, thinly sliced green onions, red onion, lime juice and ground chile. Stir well; season to taste with salt and more chile, if needed. Spread the lettuce out on a platter; pile the salad on top. Thinly slice extra green onions or cut lengthwise into long slivers. Garnish with the green onion and cucumber. Serve immediately. Note: Ground dried Thai chiles found in Asian markets are best, but ground California chile is OK. It won't add the heat typically found in Thai salads, but it does add a welcome smoky note. You can also substitute cayenne.
