I made 1/2 of the recipe and did cut back on the amount of pecans just a bit. I used Jasmine long grain rice and this was so tasty for such few ingredients. The only change I would make next time, I would still toast the pecans, but add them to the rice once it was done in order to keep a stronger crunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe Boomie. Made in honor of your win in the "All You Can Cook Buffet" event.
I've made this several times and somehow forgot to rate it. Delicious, one of my favorite long grain rice recipes! I love how much flavor there is for how few ingredients are involved. Thanks for posting!
Very good. Thanks for posting.
Perfect in every respect! I made ours as posted. I served ours with Teriyaki Pork Chops and Microwave Steamer Bag Carrot Cauliflower Medley. Thanks Boomete for a winner! Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
This is a great and easy variation on plain rice. I only used 1 medium onion (2 sounded like too much), and used pecan halves. Went great with your Steamed Salmon With Mushrooms and Leeks.
Great recipe, Boomette: very versatile. For our taste preferences, I had to add garlic. I added 4 minced cloves to the onions. I also added about a tablespoon of orange juice to help make up the 13/4 cups of stock. We love orange flavours with chicken, and I had heaps of oranges on hand. I always add some herbs, so for this dish, I added marjoram, oregano and thyme. Once the rice was ready to serve, I added warmed shredded chicken to the rice. This made a fabulously delicious meal, and one that was super easy to prepare. The pecans were great in this, adding both textural variation and flavour. Next time I make this, I'm thinking I'll try it with a can of salmon, and use dill. Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe, Boomette!
This is so unique and wonderful! I made as directed, but used 2 cups of broth. I also forgot to toast the pecans, but that was ok, it is still delicious. This is a great recipe!
After browning the onions I placed all in my rice cooker. I only used 1/2 C pecans and increased broth by 1/4 Cup.
This rice is excellant Boomette. I made it exactly as written. The butter, onions and pecans creat a lovely subtley sweet flavour. What a lovely surprise....even better than I had anticipated. I enjoyed this very much and will make again and again. Thanks so much for sharing.
Pecan rice reminds me of New Orleans and the delicious Louisiana cuisine that I so love. I did use brown rice that was cooked in the rice cooker. While the rice cooked, the pecans were toasted in a dry skillet and the onions were browned. After the rice had cooked, everything was tossed together. This was served as suggested with fish, Salmon With Citrus-Mint Gremolata.
