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.

Excellent rice side dish! I used Uncle Ben's whole grain brown rice (parboiled) and all chicken broth with walnuts. Very nice oniony, nutty flavour, with a hint of garlic. Rather than use as a side dish, on it's own, I stuffed tomatoes with it, then baked the tomatoes. they were all that was needed to go with our grilled chicken. Thanks for sharing a goodie!!

Very rice, smooth-tasting recipe. I used short grain brown rice, and a mix of water and broth (1 cup of each). This made a great side dish, but I also brought this to work with some fruit for a couple days and made a nice lunch out of it.

I used the base of this recipe for a very fussy group of eaters. I changed the stock to vegitable for the vegitarians in the crowd and the RAVED about it. I the meat eater loved it too!!!!! This is an easy very tasty recipe for everyone works for a hoiday meal.

This has become one of my favorite side dishes (it's even good cold for breakfast the next day! :) I did use 3 TBSP olive oil instead of butter. Thanks for sharing.

This was an awesome recipe! I made it as written except I substituted half the butter with coconut oil. I also added mushrooms as suggested in the recipe since I had some on hand that I needed to use. As good as it was with dinner, the leftovers for lunch the next day were even better. I tossed some dried cranberries in my lunch portion which was a delicious addition and reminded me of biryani. Hubby thought it needed a little salt, but I thought it was great as is. I will definitely be making this often from now on.

Excellent! This is a simple yet "fancy" way to serve brown rice. I steamed my rice and added it to the cooked onions, garlic and pecan mixture, sauteing the whole thing for a couple minutes before serving. We all enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for sharing.

We really enjoyed this rice dish. I used short grain brown rice. The toasted pecans add a nice texture.

This was very good! For my taste, I think the amount of butter was a little too much to go with brown rice (would have been fine for white rice). But the mixture of the pecans with onion/garlic went well with the rice. Thanks!
