Since Minute® Instant Brown Rice cooks up in just 10 minutes, you can get back to your evening routine in a matter of minutes.

If you’re thinking about skipping some of the ingredients in this dish, think again! The cornstarch may not seem necessary but it works as a thickening agent for the delicious sauce, making it more like a glaze. If you don’t have fresh grated ginger or garlic, feel free to use ground ginger and garlic powder from your spice cabinet. Simply add them in with the sauce.
