directions

  • Brown the rice, onion and garlic in the olive oil and butter over high heat.
  • Deeply browning the rice gives the rice its distinct flavor.
  • You must use the butter so it will brown.
  • Do not use margarine, it will not work.
  • This will take about 5 minutes.
  • Add water, and rest of ingredients, cover the pot and simmer on low heat until all water is absorbed (about 20 minutes).

    Very good! Poultry seasoning is the same as savory, used that and added one rib of diced celery, a little more garlic, 1/2 tsp. pepper and one tbsp. lemon juice. Will be my go to recipe for Greek rice, next time might add some feta to the finished product. Thanks for sharing!

    We used organic vegetable stock. We also added some salt and lemon juice. Will definitely make this one again.

    This is definitely much tastier the next day when all the flavors have a chance to fully absorb into the rice. My only change was to add a little extra garlic and some lemon juice.

    This is the best Greek rice dish recipe that I've found! My husband and daughter love it with chicken souvlaki and lemon potatoes!
