Loved it-loved it! Have cooked it several times now and think it is one of the best comfort-food-dishes for me! Okay,I did only use 1 Tbsp of oil and 4 Tbsp. butter,1/4 tsp of salt and beef broth instead if chicken broth,otherwise I did as the recipe reads.I served it with roasted red bell peppers and onion,and on each plate a 1/2 roasted pousin,and it was a fabulous meal. Thank you for sharing this wonderfull recipe!

What a fantastic tasting rice - this dish so different from rice dishes I've made - we loved it. I will have to seek out more Arabian recipes! Made this using ground beef - went light on the cinnamon and all spice - found I liked the combination so will increase the amount next time around. Made using the updated recipe - on step 8 put it all into my rice cooker to finish - perfect! Thank you for sharing. Into my family favorites cook book for this one.

I also needed more stock than it called for. The ingredient list calls for 4 tbsp oil but there is no mention of it in the directions. I left it out all together. My family & I didn't care for this rice. Sorry...

This was really tasty. I found I had to use a little more stock than stated. Great recipe!

This was great, very authentic. I love Middle Eastern food and this is just like the rice they serve in my favourite Lebanese restaurant. Very easy too, though I recommend that you soak the vermicelli before you try to break it up; it's much easier and less messy that way. Thanks for a yummy rice dish! :-)

This was wonderful & very aromatic! The kids loved it. I used brown rice & needed to add some extra water & cooking time. Thank you, Aaliyah's mum! :)
