I was sitting around one day wondering how to make my brown rice taste good and this is what I came up with. Makes a very flavorful side dish. I'm sure it could use some tuning up in the fat department, but it's oh so good! This dish goes GREAT with chicken, pork, steak - pretty much any main dish - and takes the "blah" out of brown rice while adding an excellent source of healthy grains.

Very tasty and easy. My first time making brown rice (trying to get a little more healthy, If Im going to eat it, it might as well have something healthful in it) anyway I used beef stock broth from a carton as my water measurement, I also added a little onion powder...smells wonderful and taste even better!

Loved this recipe. I try to get my boyfriend to eat more rice, and this got him raving and excited about rice. He wanted to give the recipe more than 5 stars! We paired with steak and the flavors went great together. Thanks for posting! We used instant brown rice so it took less than 10 minutes for ours to cook. Very quick!
