"This is an easy staple to add to a variety of different meals, added to a stir-fry, or just have a few veggies thrown in. Save money by buying rice in bulk and adding your own seasonings rather than buying it boxed and pre-mixed. The required ingredients are shown in the photo." — tina122372

instant beef bouillon granules
dried minced onion
Very nice flavor, which I’m convinced is largely because of the dried minced onion which I made a point to use, even tho’ I did make a couple of other small changes to the recipe. I added a dab of butter to the rice as it cooked, using beef broth rather than water and bouillon. Because I used fresh rather than dried herbs (including oregano rather than marjoram which is an acceptable substitute) I held off adding them until just before serving to preserve their vibrant color. Strictly for the punch of color I also added a handful of peas at the same time. I found this needed no salt, but did give it several turns of fresh ground pepper. As the first reviewer of this recipe I'm pleased to say we enjoyed this simple and humble rice side dish very much.
I tried the recipe just as-is. It tasted great, but was kind of dry. Any suggestions on how to moisten it?
Very easy to make with what you have on hand at home, but nothing memorable.
I tweaked this recipe a lot and it is a family favorite around here. It is super filling and really, really tasty with a low calorie rating of only 229 cals per serving! Not too mention it is super healthy. I added black beans and mushrooms to my recipe to add a little bit more texture in the mix!
