I used some leftover, flat champagne and it worked just as well. I had to add more water several times. I should have prepared more chicken stock and then added it, but I didn't realize I would need so much more than the recipe called for. When I do this next time, I will have more chicken stock on-hand.
The flavor of this rice is fantastic! I used brown rice so maybe that's why it took a LOT longer to cook. Even after 20 minutes, covered, it wasn't done. Still, I'll plan ahead a bit more and make this more often. Used 6 T butter but could probably cut back. Thanks!
Well, we really liked it and it worked perfectly for me, thank you Mandy, very nice recipe, made for I Recommend tag game.
I don't know if "Mandy" is still on this site, but I am glad that I discovered this outstanding Rice Recipe!I use 5 T Butter and it did take longer to get my rice done.This will be cooked a lot. Thanks for posting.
I made this tonight as a practice run for Christmas dinner. I'm glad I did. This recipe simply didn't work well. Although I liked the flavor the wine added, I didn't care for the butter. It was too overwhelming. Also, my rice never fully cooked and the last step took more like 20 minutes. I rarely make rice anymore, but if I do, I might just add wine to the water.
I'm sorry, but we really didn't like this much at all. I don't know why, but it just had a flavour that wasn't appealing to us. I really thought it would be something we would all love, based on the ingredients.
I took the easy way out and made it in my rice cooker. It worked great. I even used dehydrated onions. Normally I'm not such a slacker. Didn't wash the rice, either. Used 1/2 cup wine, 1.5 cups water, some chicken stock concentrate, a couple tbs of the onions, 2 tbs of butter and hit start. Told my kids it was "Butter rice" and they ate every bite.
This receipe is very good! Excellent flavor to the rice - a very nice change from the routine. I served with Bourbon Chicken (#45809) and peas for a good, quick dinner.
Really enjoyed this. It was tasty, and just different enough to make it a good side for a "special" dinner. Served it with a roast chicken breast, #77201 squash casserole, and some baked roma tomato halves.
Wow! I think this was the best rice dish I have ever made! I added some pine nuts and peas and used a pinot gricio wine...fabulous...
