There is not a lot to say about cooking sticky rice in a crock pot other than saying how easy this is, and how cheap rice is. Preppers already know that rice is a great preparedness food because it is cheap, filling, and lasts a long time if stored properly.
How to Cook Sticky Rice in a Crock Pot
There is not a lot of difference between cooking rice in boiling water on the stove and cooking rice in a crock pot. The ratios of water to rice (2 cups water to 1 cup rice). The only real difference is the time required. Since crock pots are fix and forget cooking utensils – they take longer than stove methods because they don’t get as hot. Depending on you settings it takes about 2 hours to cook rice in a crock pot, but time is not as important as getting the water absorbed.
The way you go about cooking rice in a crock pot is exactly opposite of cooking rice in a pressure cooker. A crock pot takes much longer, but you don’t have to watch it – which is quite useful for us busy folks.
Cooking Rice in a Crock Pot works well, but it does come out a little stickier than normal methods. Especially in the video because I did not wash the grains to get rid extra starch. I like sticky rice.
This turned out more like rice pudding than individual grains. Some would sayI cooked it too long. However, I like it this way.
I put in a lot of creamy chicken soup and shredded chicken and eat on it for a week.
If you like it less mushy then cook is a shorter time.
It never occurred to me that not everyone likes to make sticky rice. I like mine with some stick to the ribs gooey factor. I normally throw in some shredded chicken and some cream of chicken soup.
If you want the rice to be less sticky, rinse the grains first and cook for a shorter time at a higher temp.
