Make this special side dish for any holiday meal - or anytime you've got a roast pork loin or red snapper in the oven. Use a straight-sided sauté pan, sometimes called a "sauteuse", or a high-sided, oven-safe skillet.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large oven-safe sauté pan with cooking spray; heat over medium heat.
  2. Add onion, celery and garlic; cook, stirring often, until onion has softened a bit, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in cranberries and thyme; cook for 30 seconds. Pour in rice; stir well.
  4. Add broth, salt and pepper; increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  5. Cover pan and place in oven; bake until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, about 1 hour. Fluff with a fork before serving.
