Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Cut the ginger in half lengthwise.
  3. Place on a cutting board, cut side down.
  4. Crush using whatever method you like.
  5. I lay the blade of my chef's knife on the ginger and hit it with the heel of my hand.
  6. This will slightly break down ginger’s tough fibers.
  7. Transfer smashed ginger and any juices to a medium saucepan; add chicken broth and soy sauce.
  8. Bring to a boil.
  9. Meanwhile, in a heavy, over-proof skillet or sauce pan with a lid, or in a shallow, flameproof casserole with lid, heat oil over medium-high heat.

  11. Stirring often, just until rice begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  12. Stir in garlic; cook for 1 more minute.
  13. Remove from heat; pour boiling chicken broth and ginger into rice, stirring to combine.
  14. Immediately cover tightly.
  15. Bake until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  16. Remove ginger chunks.
  17. Salt and pepper to taste; stir rice to fluff.

This is very tasty! (and easy). I did the stovetop version, but next time I am using the oven for other things too, I will try that method. Thanks for a keeper.
