I liken this recipe to an estate sale. I was expecting Aunt Gladys's collection of jelly jars, but found Liberace's grand piano.

Wow! I have eaten a lot of rice in my lifetime and I can honestly say this is the best rice I have ever eaten! I finished over half of it in one sitting, that's how good it was. It was like an explosion of flavor: sweet, spicy and salty all combined into one. When I first mixed the rice in with the sauce it looked like there wasn't enough sauce, but since there is so much flavor you just need enough sauce to barely coat the rice. I will definitely be making this again very soon...probably as soon as I finish the leftovers from this time! Thanks for the recipe!

This stuff is too good to describe rationally. I made a half batch tonight and that was my supper. Only bad thing is that I'm kicking myself for not making the whole amount. It's sweet, salty, spicy, sour, and most of all, sublime. And I used coarsely chopped cashews, coarsely chopped. That's called 'gilding the lily'.

I didn't add the peanuts to this but otherwise made the same. We loved it with our Thai Grilled Chicken!

This was my first jasmine rice experience, and it is GOOD! Beautiful Wife stole most of my serving, she liked it that much. Chop the onions smaller than it says for better blending of flavors.

Wonderful Asian flavor! I'm probably considered a novice cook, but I had no trouble with this recipe. I didn't have rice vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar; and I left out the sambal oelek since I didn't have that, either. It was still absolutely delicious. I look forward to making this again, this time with the intended ingredients.

So flavorful! I made just 1/2 the recipe since it was just for me and I am glad there was so much leftover. I only added a few drops of the samba oelek since I am not a big fan of the heat. Will definitely be making this when DH is back from his business trip. Made for ZWT 9.

This was super delicious we love the combination of a little sweet and a little spicy, my only complaint was not having enough green onions to make as much of that part of the recipe, can't wait to try it again! Made for ZWT 9 SE Asia by one of Mike and the Appliance Killers.
