Garlic Butter Rice

READY IN: 25mins




  • Melt the butter or margarine in a 10" skillet over med-high heat.
  • Add the rice and stir.
  • Add the bouillon cube(s) and stir until softened or dissolved.
  • I use a spoon and break the bouillon cube(s) apart while it is dissolving so that it dissolves faster.
  • Watch closely so that the rice does not start to brown.
  • You might need to lower the heat if the rice starts to brown or appears to be cooking too fast.
  • Add the water and stir.
  • Cover with a lid and bring it to a boil.
  • Lower the heat to med to med-low and cook for 10 minutes or until rice is almost tender and a lot, but not all, of the water/butter mixture has been absorbed.
  • This comes out better if it is "slow cooked".
  • Add the garlic and stir.
  • Put the lid back on the skillet and continue cooking for 5 more minutes or until the rice is tender and all of the water has been absorbed.
  • There may still be some melted butter at the bottom of the skillet, but that is okay.
  • Stir well and turn the burner off.
  • Let the skillet sit on the burner until you are ready to serve the rice.
