I was looking for a great rice recipe to serve with Filet Mignon or Prime Rib ( to mimic a favorite restaurant) and this is it ! I added green pepper slices but that was the only thing.. this is a wonderful dish.

This was good, but could've used a bit more flavor. I didnt see a huge difference in the taste of this and a store bought rice-in-a-box product.

Just to clarify-- If the rice is a little wet for you-- Just take the lid off at the end and let it cook for 5-10 minutes longer. It will be perfect.

This tastes like what Rice-A-Roni wants to be when it grows up. Next time I'll cut down on the butter and add a little less liquid. It was a bit wet for our tastes, but delicious.

This is what my stepfather always calls "the rice dish"; he recalled that it was present at all of his family's holiday dinners. He described it for me and this is basically what's been coming out of the oven ever since. Only thing I do differently is saute the rice and onion in the butter before I put it in the pan and mix with the liquid.

Thanks for this! Your recipe, minus the parmesan, was my mother's and grandmother's "rice pilaf." It's awesome!

I used fresh mushrooms and garlic that I sauteed in a little of the butter called for in the recipe. My boys especially loved this rice, but both my husband and I thought it could use a little spice. Me on my own thought that the butter could be cut out a bit and maybe add in something else (like pureed vegetables) to replace some of the fat. It went really well with My Mom's Parmesan Chicken, which is also from this site, and roasted vegetables. Very simple, which this tired Mama appreciated, and it used on hand ingredients. I'll make this again, but play with it next time.

My family totally loves this rice. It is so super to make, and easy to customize. My kids even wanted me to make it for Thanksgiving dinner.
