One-pot rice

This is kind of like a clay-pot rice dish, but much simpler.


I find this is enough for 1-2 people.

  1. 2 cups of rice
  2. Water
  3. Dry shitake mushrooms
  4. Lapcheong Chinese sausage
  5. Minced ginger (optional)


  1. An hour before cooking, rehydrate the mushrooms by soaking them in water. Once rehydrated, slice them thin.
  2. Wash the rice under water until it mostly runs clear.
  3. In a pot with a lid, add the rice and enough water to submerge the rice by about 1/2 inch of water.
  4. Top with sliced mushrooms, sliced Chinese sausage, and minced garlic.
  5. Cook in a rice cooker or on the stovetop at medium heat for 20 minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat and let the rice sit for another 20 minutes.
  7. Gently fluff the rice with a spoon or spatula, then serve.
