How to cook rice in your slow cooker

One of the worst nightmares for any mom out there. My stove is broke! Which of course, includes my oven too.  While I wait for the appliance guy to order the part and fix it, I had to come up with meals that could either be microwaved (which are slim and none) or crockpot cooking. Tonights menu was Sushi. So how would I prepare the rice without a burner? That's when my beautiful little crockpot came swooping down from the sky wearing a red cape and a big "S" painted on the front. (okay, slight overreaction). Crockpot to the rescue. Here's how to make perfectly steamed rice in your slow cooker.

 You'll Need:
- 1 T. butter or margarine (I used margarine spread)
- 2 C. of white rice (any rice would work, but that's what I used)
- 4 C. water

-Rub butter around the inside of your crockpot
-Add rice and water. (could also use a pinch of salt and chicken broth for a more flavorful rice)
-Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours, checking every 30 minutes. 

You're left with perfectly steamed, delicious rice.
