Oooh, this was a yummy delicious rice dish. I used long grain brown rice which tasted great with the onion, garlic and pecan. So much better than just plain boring rice. I did like one of the other reviewers and took the left-overs to work the next day for lunch. Very filling. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
