Rice came out perfect, if a little bland. Added a little salt. I served this with oxtail stew.

I used my own ratio of brown rice to pork stock and chicken stock, then added the rest. Didn't need to saute the carrots and added chopped leftover pork at the end. Also added garlic powder and dried minced onions and didn't use almonds. Tasted great, for a main dish, with a little added salt.

Great recipe! I did as KelBel suggested and used water and dill instead of beef broth and thyme and served with fish. I also added 1/4 c. chopped celery and canned peas instead of frozen. My husband and two toddlers liked it a lot too! Thanks!!

Yumm-O. I don't have a rice cooker so just did it in a pot on the stove. I was really amazed at how much the scattering of almonds added here (ok, I used a bit more than what was ask for). The flavors were perfect along side of tonights pot roast. The beef stock added a very nice base flavor without being overpowering and I loved the thyme added to this. Thanks Bev for another winner.

I love trying out rice cooker recipes because it's always fun to do something different in the rice cooker. Unfortunately, I think I like plain rice better than this recipe. I think it may have been the thyme that ruined the taste for me. The thyme with everything else was a little weird and overpowering. Sadly, I don't think I'll be keeping this recipe.

This makes a nice dry, fluffy rice. Since I was serving with fish, I used just water and a dill seasoning mix instead of the thyme. I also omitted the frozen peas. This is a great method for flavorful rice that that allows you to change it up to suit your taste and compliment the meal it is being served with.
