    Love the Ease

    Long grain rice is better for us; but it always tastes like plain ol' rice! Because of this recipe, I now eat the healthy stuff! You get it started and let it do it's thing - 20 minutes later, everyone is chowing down! So easy and tasty! My family looks forward to having a side-dish of long grain rice; I change the flavors to help keep it satisfying :)

    Use for any receipe that calls for cooked rice

    O M Gosh! this is a fool proof for cooking rice! Use beef if you are serving with meat dish, chicken with poultry, veg broth for any...

    Broth Simmered Rice

    Easy to make but not the best rice I've had. It needed more flavor.

    Broth Simmered Rice

    Very good and EXTREMELY easy! I did cook the rice a tad longer as the rice wasn't quite tender... but all in all, the rice was VERY good! I will make this again very soon!

    Broth Simmered Rice

    This is the only way I cook rice! Add a package of Vegetable Soup mix for an even better treat!
