"Awesome rice cooked in chicken broth, then topped with burnt butter! A family favorite that me Greek Grandpa used to make! My dad loves it with plain yogurt on top and my mother, with buttery tomato sauce. Great with everything!"

long grain white rice

Understated, yet fabulous. This last time I made it, I tossed on a layer of finely chopped fresh spinach right after pouring the butter on. It steamed perfectly and added some beatiful color, flavor and nutrition (gotta get it into the toddler somehow!). I also love this recipe because unlike plain rice, the leftovers don't dry out and you can enjoy it several days later. Thank you for this go-to side dish that I can pull out on a moments notice and impress company.
I really liked the flavor that the burnt butter gave the rice. It's very subtle and goes well with anything. However I followed the directions exactly and the rice was still crunchy after standing for 15 minutes. I had to take the lid off and add a bit more water and cook longer. Next time I would simmer for 20 minutes at the beginning instead of 15.
Its so easy and tasty. I added some garlic to my rice when i cooked the butter and it gave a really nice flavor. make sure you use the long grain as written, otherwise using japanese type rice will turn out a bit watery. it didnt bother me that is was a bit watery, so I would say that I enjoyed it.
thanks leslie for submitting this recipe.
Hold on while I unclog my arteries. Ah-hem. This is one of the best tasting rice dishes I've ever had. It's simple to make, and the whole family scarfed it down. I made the following changes: One can of chicken broth, one can of vegetable broth (slightly less than 4 cups, but it turned out perfect). I also added a little garlic powder before boiling the rice. I also made mine in my electric skillet which made clean-up a breeze (the butter I burned in a separate pan). Imagine...burning your food on purpose! Who cares, it works! Thanks so much!
I'm not really sure what I expected, but this tasted like rice covered in burnt butter. Not so good.
My Family just raves about this rice!! My son can't get enough of it!!! It may have to cook 5 minutes longer!! This is a keeper
This rice was absolutely delicious - I can't wait to make it again! I cut the recipe in half and it turned out perfectly. I cooked the butter in a stainless steel skillet only until medium brown - there was still some foam on top. The browned butter gave a wonderfully rich and nutty flavour to the rice, just excellent!!
Yum! This is a great way to make rice. I used brown rice and had to cook it longer, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The burnt butter really adds a lot of flavor. It is a little greasy but in a good way!
