I boil it in chicken broth and butter. At the same time I am frying up mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and garlic in olive oil. When the rice is done I add it to the mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and garlic.

Mike, we frequently have leftover broth in the frig. I will use it up in certain things in places that call for water. Make a difference to, to the point I use broth now instead of water 👍

For me I have it down to where there isn't any left over broth when the rice is done or very little. If there is it goes in with the mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and garlic.

For the wild rice I use it takes about 15-20 minutes. I get the broth boiling in a covered pot and then I add the rice and recover it until it starts boiling again. Then turn it down so it stays boiling but doesn't boil out. After about 5 minutes or so take the cover off and finish boiling it until it is done. These are all estimates and it really depends on the quality of the wild rice you use. If you have the dark black colored stuff it takes a longer.

So you boil it the whole time?  I think reg, rice you bring to a boil then simmer covered until done?  I think?

Leech yes but a slow boil, like a simmer. 

 

And I agree 100% with chaffmj the dark black rice takes a lot longer. I way prefer the lighter color rice.

any of you guys ever tried the cheater method with your wild rice and throw it in an instapot?

 

I rinse the rice off and then add 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water or broth in the instapot.  I just do a manual cook for 30 mins and then let it release naturally. I cook white rice the same way even though there is a rice mode.

 

The instapot cook time is roughly about the same as boiling in a pot but at least you don't have to tend to it and babysit it. You just set the timer and do other stuff. Results may very on the rice so may need some adjustments.
