Cuisine American
Method Oven
Servings 3


  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice, I prefer Mahatma Brown Rice
  • 2 3/4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cracked black pepper, course grind
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Place the rice into an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Bring the water, butter, pepper and salt to a boil in a covered pot on the stove top.
  • Once your water boils pour it over the rice, stir to combine and cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil. Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, remove cover. You will see the top speckled with your pepper. Fluff the rice with a fork. Sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper for garnish . Serve immediately or allow to cool and refrigerate.

Donna’s Notes

To reheat rice drizzle 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of water over a serving of rice and microwave for 30 – 60 seconds.

  1. I add tons of black pepper to everything so this definitely sounds like something I would love!
