I thought the flavor of this dish was wonderful. The celery paired with the orange was particularly noteworthy--a surprise to me. I steamed in rice in a steamer and had some problems with the rice being done. I think, however, that this was an appliance problem rather than a recipe problem.

I have never cooked rice with orange juice before and I'm glad I gave this recipe a try. Wonderful flavor. My husband kept saying how good it tasted. :)
