Short Grain Brown, Organic

Short grain brown rice is one of the most full-flavored rices and is an excellent source of whole grain. After cooking, the grains are soft and cling together. Because of these properties, Short Grain Brown rice is especially suitable in recipes where a creamy texture is desired, such as puddings, rice balls, croquettes, paella, and risotto.

Cooking Instructions

  • 1 cup Lundberg® Short Grain Brown rice
  • 1¾ cups water or broth
  • 1 tbsp. butter (optional)
  • salt to taste

Combine rice, water, and butter (optional) in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to low-simmer, and cook for 45 minutes. Remove from heat (with lid on!) and steam for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork.

*If rice is crunchy at the end of cooking time, it may be necessary to add 1-2 Tbsp. liquid and cook longer.

    I have a bag of Short Grain Brown Rice in my pantry.  What I would like to know is how to read the code on the package.  I assume it will tell me how old this product is or the recommended shelf life.  There is not much worse than cooking up some rice that has sat on the shelf too long.

    I would appreciate any help you could give.  Thanks.................

    This is the best rice I've ever eaten!  I need to find out how to buy it in bulk from you.

    I want to use a rice cooker to cook my short grain brown rice.  How much water to rice would you recommend I use? 
  5. Lundberg Family Farms 28 Feb

    Hi Kathleen,
    When using a rice cooker, you can actually use the same water-to-rice ratio as stovetop cooking: 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difference in flavor between the brown and the golden rose? I know the brown has a very nutty flavor, it almost reminds me a little of corn. Also, is the brown rice more nutritionally dense than the golden rice?

    I've been buying the brown exclusively but I was thinking of getting golden rose just out of curiosity, I haven't decided yet.

    Hi Maria,
    Golden Rose is actually a brown rice as well so you'll still get that delicious nutty texture & flavor. "Golden Rose" is just the name of the variety. It is a medium grain rice, so it's going to be a little sticker than a long grain brown but not as sticky as the short grain - A perfect all-purpose rice :)

    We cooked and ate some rice that was A YEAR passed the pull date.  Should we be concerned?

    Hi Kelly, Thanks for commenting! Don't worry- the rice will not make you sick, it just may not taste as good as it usually does and it may have a rancid odor when cooked after the pull date. In order to extend the shelf life, we recommend freezing the rice or keeping it in the refrigerator. Hope this helps! Don't hesitate to contact us if you ever have any more questions :)

    Love the rice, hate the "Nutrition Facts" description.  The end user does not know how to convert the"Dry" calculation into Cooked values.  Please at least, list the Serving values for 1/2 cup cooked, 3/4 cup cooked and 1 cup cooked on this website (stipulate added water, no butter).  A online search for these values are mostly incorrect - try it you'll see.  

    Signed: Frustrated by the labeling.
