DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium to large skillet, melt butter. Add rice, dried garlic, dried onion and black pepper.
  • Stirring quite frequently, saute' the mix until the rice changes to a pale brown color.
  • Shake the can of broth, then open it and carefully pour it into the skillet with the rice.
  • If you want to add pre-cooked meats and canned vegetables(frozen vegetables will add more time to cooking), do this now -- otherwise:.
  • Add water to the point where the liquid is two times the amount of the rice, a 2 to 1 ratio. This is a key to success with this rice.
  • Stir to mix it all, while bringing it to a boil.
  • Turn your heat down to a simmer and cover your skillet.
  • Cook for 18 to 20 minutes without lifting the cover (this is another key to success with this rice). I prefer glass lids for my pots and skillets so I can see inside my skillet without lifting the lid.
  • When your rice gets holes that look like you've poked your finger in it all over, it is most likely done.
  • At this point lift the lid and stir the rice to see if it's finished and to relieve the heat at the bottom and mix flavor.
