I used brown rice and adjusted the water and cooking time (5 cups water, 2 cups rice, 45 min) and it came out awesome. I made it as a side with churrasco steak with chimichurri. I think it would go well with any pork dish as well.

This was pretty good, but we thought it would have tasted better if the lime juice had been added at the end. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

I followed the recipe exactly, using 1 1/2 limes. It turned out perfect! Just like Cafe Rio. Thank you for the recipe!

This is very good. For the reviewer that said there was too much water--white rice is always cooked with a two to one ratio. Switching to brown rice was your mistake. This rice is a very good Care Rio clone.

Super easy and delicious! I used this for burrito bowls with carnitas, pinto beans, fresh salsa and guacamole, and sour cream. Just as good...if not better...than Chipotle! I can't wait to try this with sweet pork!

This was a great recipe! Very light and tasty. I served it with meat and later put in salads.

I go to Cafe Rio all the time. But now that I have this recipe I don't have to. I love it, it tastes just like the real thing!!!
