Expert Tips

  • Cooked long-grain white rice (without salt, oil or butter) is essential to the success of this recipe. Do not use uncooked rice, instant rice, parboiled rice or precooked rice, as many of these types contain oil to prevent sticking, which will affect the recipe. Uncooked or parboiled rice will be crunchy after cooking, and instant rice results in a mealy, grainy texture.
  • It's important to stir rice mixture after 2 hours of cook time to ensure even cooking and to prevent burning.
  • For the most tender, evenly cooked results, make sure to cook rice on low heat only. Rice cooked on high heat will be crunchy and dry and burn onto the edges of the slow cooker.
  • Evaporated milk adds a richness and creaminess to the rice without curdling.
  • For dried fruit lovers, stir 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries into rice mixture after cooking.
  • Add a dash of cinnamon or a handful of chopped walnuts to servings of rice pudding, if desired.
