- Cook according to steamer's settings.
I made this recipe as written.
We loved it for dinner here, a change from the normal everyday rice, with lovely flavours from the tomato's and herb's.
I did have trouble with the cooking of the rice, I just can't get used to my rice cooker!!!!! I don't seem to ever get it perfect, and the rice did end up just a fraction gluggy, but that is no fault of this wonderful recipe, it is entirely the fauly of my rice cooker and myself! :-)
The family all did enjoy this and I will be making it again, and again, until I get this perfected... or throw out my rice cooker, whichever comes first! lol
Great, easy and fantastic tasting recipe AZPARZYCH.
Thanks for a great way to serve rice.

I really didn't know what to expect,it's the vinegar that did that to me. I halved the recipe and I used real tomatoes,but I was too lazy to peel them. It tasted very Mexican to me and it was asking for some habanero sauce.Great dish. Thanks for sharing.
Made recipe as posted, except cut it down to 4 servings. Very tasty, and flavorful. Will repeat. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
