How to cook rice on the stove in 3 easy steps

I have a Japanese rice cooker. I’m not ashamed of this, as it produces perfectly cooked rice and keeps it warm for days. I grew up with a rice machine, unlike my friends. The good ones can be pricey and it takes up valuable kitchen space if you live in a small space, so it’s not for everyone. That doesn’t mean I don’t know how to cook rice the old school way.

I have the secret to cooking rice on the stovetop like a professional and it’s super simple.
