    Recipe Baroness's Note:

    This is pure southern soul food. Its been made for generations in my family since the early 1900's. Every area of the south has a version of red rice but I saw that Zaar did not have a recipe quite like this one. I cannot get enough of this southern delight and thought you might like it as well.

      I made this dish today and my family loved it. I was born and raised in Charleston and this dish felt like home. Loved it!!!

      Tastes just like the Charleston red rice I grew up with! The only thing I changed about this recipe is that I remained cooking it on the stove top and it still came out wonderful.

      This was so good - loads of flavor and finishing off the dish in the oven produced great texture in the rice. DH likes spicy dishes but this had way too much heat for even him. We put in only one of the two tablespoons of black pepper and found that we'll have to cut that back to 1/2 a tablespoon next time we prepare this (whimps). Great stuff! Thanks Recipe Barnoness :)
