Rice Cooker Butter Rice

You asked for more recipes using the rice cooker, so here it is! I even sauteed the garlic in the rice cooker. I was playing around with it last night, and I was blown away that you could turn on the heat without closing the lid! Did you know this was possible??? It does take some time to heat up, and it doesn’t get crazy hot, but it’s still awesome! Of course, you can also make this in your Instapot or pressure cooker.

I’m not sure of the origin of butter rice, but I had it for the first time at a Korean restaurant. I just remember my son devouring it like he hadn’t eaten in days.

I bet it would be even more delicious if the butter were browned. Mmm. I had it with a runny egg and Maggi seasoning, but you can eat it however you like it.
