You know how bland rice can be sometimes. This will be one of your favorite ways to prepare it. The recipe is old and very Southern. Mothers taught their daughters to cook using this recipe. Try serving with green beans, kale, collards, or peas.
If your family just hates grits serve this with you Grillades.
Beefy Rice with Onions
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup chopped onion
One 10 1/2-ounce can beef broth
One 10 1/2-ounce can beef consomme
1 cup converted white rice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a 2-quart ovenproof saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until transparent, for about 2 minutes. Stir in the broth and consomme. Add the rice.
Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until almost all of the liquid has been absorbed. Stir. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes.
COOK'S NOTE: If you can't find beef consomme, just use another can of beef broth.
