    I brown the rice in 1 Tablespoon of butter then add a can of French Onion soup (condensed), a can of water (same can), and a can of mushrooms (8 oz drained). Stir, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer covered 20-25 min. Quick, easy, everything in the pantry.

    I like to cook my rice in the oven, especially if something else will be cooking there. A covered casserole or pot at 350*F for about 45 minutes(if starting with hot liquid) until liquid is absorbed. It can also cook at temps a bit higher or lower, if necessary-timing will be different, of course. I use a pyrex dish which allows me to easily see the liquid level.

    This recipe is delicious. The only changes I made (out of necessity) were: I had no green onions,so I had to use a yellow one, finely diced, and had only a 4oz can of mushrooms, which I thought was plenty. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. BTW, I believe a cube of butter is 1 tablespoon. Take one stick of cold butter, and with a sharp knife, cut through it at the tablespoon mark, and walla, a cube of butter, which is slightly more than a "pat" of butter. More can be used, if desired.
