Browning the rice gives this dish so much more extra flavor --- the garlic amount may be adjusted to taste.

Excellent!! We love garlic, so this was perfect with Mongolian Beef. I probably added more garlic than called for in the recipe. I made it with half broth and half water. It came out fluffy and moist. Browning the rice adds such a wonderful flavor. Will definitely make this again and will be my standard rice dish with any Asian dishes.

Just cooked this dish for dinner. Was really tasty and flavorful. I used 2 cups (one can) of chicken broth and 2 cups water. Will definately use this recipe again.
