This is a simple side that can be made on the stove top when it is hot out or in the oven on cold winters day. While it is best made with chicken stock it can also be made with vegetable stock for vegetarians or those on restricted diets.


  1. Heat oil in medium pan and saute the garlic just till it begins to color (careful not to overcook the garlic or it will be bitter), add the rice and saute one to two minutes.
  2. *For stove top add chicken broth and wine and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 60 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Fluff with fork and serve.
  4. **For oven method preheat oven to 375°F while you saute garlic and oil (as above in step one).
  5. Place sauted rice in an 8" casserole dish.
  6. Bring stock to boil, add wine and pour over rice.
  7. Cover with foil and bake in middle of oven for 1 hour.
  8. Fluff with fork and serve.

This is very good. I ended up cooking this for 90 minutes, then letting it sit for 5 minutes to get it to the right texture. The flavor is wonderful. Long cooking time, but nothing required from the cook during the time, so it is a winner! I used the stove-top method. Made for PRMR tag.

Great flavor in this rice! I told DH we are going to start only eating brown rice (no more white) and he is fine with it as long as it is this good. I didn't want to overwhelm him with the garlic so I used 4 small cloves, but next time I will use 6. Made it on the stove top and it was perfect; going to try in my rice cooker. Made for PRMR.
