Do not cook rice in advance. I used Great Value Long-Grain Rice.This recipe is formulated to use long-grain white rice. I have not made this with brown rice. Brown rice and white rice are not equal substitutes. Brown rice uses more liquid and takes much longer to cook. I used a Hamilton Beach 6-qt Slow Cooker. It took 3 1/2 hours.The rice will not be light and fluffy like plain cooked rice. The rice is soft. This is a casserole. The mixture will be somewhat thick.I buy the soup mix online at Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lipton-Savory-Herb-with-Garlic-Soup-and-Dip-Mix-2-4-oz/10307795If you can't find the soup mix, you can substitute a package of Good Seasonings Italian Dressing Mix.
