This is a stand-by at our house. I rarely cook just "plain" rice. Goes great with chops or steak.

We enjoyed this with some lamb we were having. It was really delicious! I did leave out the nutmeg.

This rice was very good. My dh is not a rice lover, but he loves lemon risotto, so I gave this a try. He actually enjoyed it. I knew I would like it, but sometimes he can be pretty picky. I didn't have long grain rice, so I just used two cups of instant rice instead, and it came out perfect. Thanks for posting!

I tried, I liked, third time I loved!I used Sysco chicken base and water for the chicken broth and added a frozen ice cube of homemade broth. I also used Calrose rice, not long grain. I am a fan of white pepper and lemon juice. This recipe is great with fish also. Thanks for posting!
