How many cups of rice in 5lb bag?
About 11 cups of rice equal a 5 lb bag of rice.
There are right at about 2 1/2 cups of uncooked rice in a one pound bag. Perhaps a teaspoon more, but the difference isn't worth mentioning for kitchen work. And don't go asking if that's long grain, short grain, wild, brown, Arborio or anything else. Two and one half cups per pound of uncooked rice. Take it to the kitchen and it will work out every time. Bon Appétit!
