Brown rice takes about 45 minutes to cook. There are several brands of quick-cooking brown rice available. Their cooking time ranges from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. I find the 30-minute rice has more flavor, but any quick-cooking rice will work for this dinner. It also works well with microwaveable brown rice.
