Top Review by Mimi Bobeck

Very Delish, ver unusual. If you are bored of your usual ho hum dishes - give this a try. The interesting combination of cup onions, green bell peppers, pecan, raisins, apples worked fabulous. And I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the dressing. I'm going to make a bottle of that alone and use it on other entrees and dishes! It's hot, it's spicey it's got soul it's the best!

Directions

  1. Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In a 2-quart saucepan, heat the oil over high heat until very hot, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the onions and bell peppers; saute about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the pecans and continue cooking for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the raisins and butter (these are added together so the raisins will absorb as much butter as possible).
  6. Stir until butter is melted, then cook until raisins are plump, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add the rice and seasoning mix and cook until rice starts looking frizzly (a bit like ce Krispies) Chef Prudhomme recommended using converted rice.
  8. This will require about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring almost constantly before the rice looks "frizzly".
  9. Stir in the stock, scraping pan bottom well, then stir in the apples.
  10. Cover pan and bring to boil; lower heat and simmer covered for 5 minutes.
  11. Remove from heat and let sit, *COVERED*, until rice is tender and stock is absorbed, about 30 minutes. (We cook the rice this slow way to let the flavors build to their maximum.) Serve immediately, allowing about 3/4 cup per person.
