This was delicious and the house smelled fabulous. I made it to go with bulgogi marinated pork loin. Four stars instead of five only because I don't think stewed cilantro does well in any dish. Next time, I would toss the fresh cilantro into the cooked rice just before serving, or possibly use Thai basil. I cut the recipe by one third and still had a lot left over for next day. Will definitely be making again.
OMG this rice was great serve it with salmon.
We loved this rice...easy and colorful. I did add some frozen peas. Served with Bourbon Chicken #45809 and it was perfect.
