I love this yellow rice (as I should, since I'm Steingrim's wife!). :) I love it when he makes it for our meals. It's not at all difficult to make, and rich and buttery-tasting.

Great yellow rice! The texture and flavor of this rice was very good. It was buttery with not too strong of an annato taste. My family loves yellow rice and I've been searching for the recipe for a long time. I've tried a few recipes, but none have compared to this one! I normally buy the packaged "yellow rice" by Goya because it's my step-daughters favorite, but this beats Goya by far! Plus, I feel better about giving my family something that wasn't packaged. I'll be making this rice for years to come! Thanks Steingrim for sharing a great recipe!
