    May I assume that the short grain brown rice can be substituted here?  We just bought a very large bag of the short grain and I'm looking for recipes.

    Dianne, short grain brown rice will produce a stickier rice than the long grain brown rice will.  The flavor will be the same, so as long as you don't mind a stickier texture then go for it :)

    I'm confused. Is it 2 or 3 or 4 cups of chicken broth?

    Hi Claudette,
    Apologies for the typo.  The measurement for chicken broth is 2 & 3/4 cups :)

    Is the rice uncooked when you are sauteing it?

    Yes, the rice should be uncooked.
