EASY Sticky Rice (In the CrockPot)


I’m a bit of a “rice snob”- I’m not a fan of rice in a bag, rice out of the microwave, or minute rice.

I do adore “official” sticky rice, but if you’ve ever made it you know it’s a process! Here’s a quick and easy way to make delicious sticky rice in no time at all. Just throw your rice, water and butter in a CrockPot on high heat for 2 hours and it’s done!


You won’t want rice any other way after you try this! LOVE it.

  1. Yep. Some people just dont get that I dont like that rice…. sigh.

  2. I’m a rice snob too!! haha Probably because I’m Hispanic 😉 This is amazing, thank you for sharing! I can make Spanish rice no problem but white rice…yuck lol Pinned!

  3. I’m making this right now to have with stir fry for dinner. I love easy crock pot recipes! Thank you!

    Can you use any kind of white rice. I’ve been to 5 different stores looking for what other recipes call for for sticky rice but didn’t find any. Will Jasmine rice work?

  5. Can you use brown rice?

  6. Can you do this rice in a bag in the slow cooker?

  7. Have you ever thought about just getting a rice cooker? They are inexpensive and you get perfect rice every time AND you don’t have to wait two hours like the way you do using the crock pot.

  8. I have real sticky rice that I purchased at an Asian grocery store. I have terrible luck cooking it, though, always comes out hard and crispy. Do you think this rice will work in the recipe and would I have to soak it first like you do real sticky rice? Thank you!

  9. Will the rice burn in the slow cooker? I’ve burned a pot of rice before and it wasn’t a pretty sight. Can this rice be frozen?

    • Hi Heather, I would not recommend freezing the rice. Yes, the rice will burn if you aren’t careful. Make sure there is plenty of water- you can always add water and put it on “keep warm” if you feel there is a threat that it might burn.

    When I was in college I used to buy my rice at a Vietnamese grocery. The owner showed me which rice to buy if I wanted sticky rice (short to medium grain), and which rice to buy if I wanted a more grainy rice (long grain). Kroger used to carry medium grain rice. I used to use it all the time, but I haven’t noticed it on the shelf lately.

    I will try your rice. Is it made with regular long grain rice that is more available, or are you using medium grain rice?

  11. Okay, we make a lot of Thai and Korean recipes at home, and the sticky rice recipe I was using was okay sometimes and sometimes not, so I searched and found yours. I was doubtful, but tried it tonight and it was perfect. There’s nothing, and I mean nothing, that could improve this recipe. Perfection. Thanks for sharing.

  12. For the reason that the admin of this site is working, no
    question very shortly it will be famous,
    due to its feature contents.
