  1. This recipe needs to be clearer . But if u get the regular box of success rice, those bags are 1 cup of rice so u would need 4 bags of that rice.

  2. One bag of success rice is 2 cups of rice so if recipe calls for two bags, than you would use 4 cups total of any rice.

    1. That conversion is 2 cups COOKED rice. For the success large bag, it is 5.5 ounces uncooked. so you would need 11 ounces uncooked. We are going to try 2 cups uncooked white rice.

    2. Lori, *update*, we did 2 cups uncooked white rice (not success), and it was too much rice. I think 1.5 cups uncooked rice is probably good.

    1. Hi Rosemary, use 2 bags. The amounts are in the recipe card near the bottom of the page.

    I know it says to use boil in the bag of rice, but have you tried instant rice before, and if so, how did that work?

    1. Hello
      Do you coat your crock pot b4 adding in ingredience so as not to burn sides?
