Very easy. The rice, preferably, should be one day old (so that it is less sticky) but I have done it all once several times with good results. I also want to try adding in bean sprouts, but I keep forgetting to pick some up at the store.
Credit for this dish goes to Ruth Ann Klassen of Aberdeen, Idaho who says this recipe came from her husband's grandmother. It's quick to make and very tasty. Hearty helpings of this specially seasoned rice will disappear in a hurry at your dinner table. Note: Cooking time does not include time to cook rice. An option is to use instant brown rice to reduce prep time.
This is a wonderful easy side dish to chicken or meat and any leftovers freeze wonderful, it may also be baked in a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate and cut into wedges, this may be doubled but I would still only use one package or spinach or maybe 1-1/2 packages adding in too much spinach will overpower all other ingredients, prep time does not include cooking the rice --- FOR FREEZING prepare recipe as directed but do not bake, wrap pan in plastic wrap then tightly in foil and freeze, to serve thaw over night in refrigerator, remove wrapping bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until hot.
DH wanted spanish rice one night so I made the following recipe that I got from Betty Crocker. OMG, it was just like eating my mom's. I forgot how good her spanish rice was!!! Try it, you won't be disappointed!!! Serve as a meal in its self or as a side dish.
I found this recipe in Organic Gardening magazine when my children were babies. It truly does make absolutely perfect brown rice every time! Never gummy. You can easily substitute it in recipes calling for rice without your family noticing (well, unless they dissect everything with a magnifying glass like my son likes to do)!
*Please note: THIS IS JUST A RECIPE FOR BASIC RICE! It will NOT be fabulous alone! Use it for any recipe calling for cooked rice/ or spiff it up with the addition of garlic, onion, herbs, broth sub for water, etc. etc.
It WILL be bland if served as is!
A long time family favorite! --- you can substitute the broccoli florets for one 6-ounce package frozen pea pods if desired --- make certain the the cooked ground beef is very well browned and well drained, also make certain to use only *cold* cooked rice, cooking time does not include cooking the rice --- you will love this! :)
Since there is no precooking the ground beef for this casserole it comes together quite easy, just layer ingredients and bake in just one dish, I always season the ground beef with seasoned salt, black pepper, fresh garlic and a few tablespoons of Parmesan cheese but that is only optional, you can even sprinkle cheddar cheese in the middle also when layering :)
No need to order in chow mein when you can make it yourself, this is just as good if not even better than any Chinese restaurant or take-out -- if you prefer more flavor then add in more soy sauce --- if desired after the pork is finished browning you may add in fresh minced garlic and stir for 2 minutes, this is only optional --- you will love this!
Are you craving that great Mexican rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years!
I don't own a rice cooker but some people have had disappointing results using one. You will also need to adjust your cooking time if you want to use brown rice. I recommend following the cooking instructions as directed. Proceed at your own peril if you stray.
This is delicious! The original recipe came from the Desperation Dinners column in my newspaper. I used garlic oil instead of peanut oil. You could add some cooked chicken, cooked pork, cooked shrimp or cooked beef to make a main dish.
