  • Wash the rice in strainer.
  • Soak rice for 15 minutes in hot water.
  • Put butter in pan, melt, and then brown Spaghetti pieces or Orzo using a medium heat.
  • Be careful not to burn the butter.
  • Now drain your rice that is soaking and add it to the butter/ Spaghetti (or Orzo) in your pan.
  • Saute the rice for approximately 5 minutes with medium heat stirring frequently to avoid burning the rice.
  • You want a nice light brown color.
  • After rice is browned, add 4 Cups Hot Water and Salt.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • You want it to boil briskly for about 5 minutes.
  • Turn heat to LOW and cook until all the water is absorbed.

  • You might want to stir once or twice to make sure it is not burning.
  • Uncover when you are ready to serve and make sure to stir it again at this point.
