Mixture of rice and vermicelli slightly browned with a buttery flavor. I love this with ribs, salmon, or barbecued chicken. This recipe is from my mother-in-law, takes about 1/2 hour to prepare, and you need 2 sauce pans. Don't sub with brown rice because it doesn't taste as good. You can cut the butter a little if you want but the more you reduce butter the drier the rice. Use real butter! I suggest make it as is written the first time around.
