Of course I follow the instructions. And if it has water I even let it simmer longer but it doesnt seem to help. I don't want to switch back to white rice but I can't do rice that tastes like this!
Believe it or not soak it for 2-3 hours before. Also this washes some of the dirt out of it because brown rice is gritty. I learned this from an Indian woman ( East Indian). She was shocked to see that Americans do not soak there rice. They soak all of them even white because it makes cooking it easier and it does get some sediment out that is espeically present in most natural grain rices. Since I have done this brown rice is like a much better food. No more weird texture, residue or uneven cooking.

I don't use the instant because I'm super budget conscious. Instant usually comes in smaller packaging and not as great of a deal per ounce. I'm going to try soaking though. Thanks ladies!
