DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse rice in several changes of cold water until water runs clear.
  • Drain well in a sieve.
  • Bring rice, broth, cinnamon stick, and bay leaves to a boil in a 4-quart heavy pot over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let stand, covered and undisturbed, 5 minutes.
  • Discard bay leaves, then stir in butter until melted.
  • Fluff gently with a fork.
  • Cooks' note:.
  • Rice can be made 1 day ahead and cooled completely, uncovered, then chilled in an airtight container. Reheat rice, its surface covered with a dampened paper towel, in a colander set over a saucepan of boiling water, covered, 5 to 10 minutes.
