I don't know!? I should have known as I was looking at the recipe, but I went ahead and made it anyway. I think the proportions were all screwed up! I had to take a cup or so of liquid out and it still took an extra hour to get the rice to cook...HMM...The temperature was probably a little off. And as I tasted to see if the rice was done, It didn't have much flavor so I added some celery salt and that helped(celery would have been a nice touch but it was to late!) We ate it anyway but next time I'd cut the liquid in half. The recipe needed alot of revise.
Well...I used 1/2 cup of milk instead of one, and I made sure the rice was cooked beforehand. It turned out somewhat okay, but I think it could use less onion. Maybe about a quarter of the amount that was used.
