I had to improvise w/ what I had on hand--namely, fresh cranberries. Big mistake. I assumed the problem is that you need sweetened cranberries--but that makes the whole dish too sweet, since you use brown sugar w/ the onion as well as orange juice. So *definitely* don't use sweetened dried cranberries or fresh cranberries. Try to find unsweetened dried cranberries for the best balance.
Way too much orange flavor and ended up being kind of gummy.
this one is an incredible recipe. time consuming but worth the effort. even the men love this one!
I really like this dish. It has a very hearty and rich flavor. I thought that six onions might be too much, so I used five. Still very good.
This was surprisingly nice. I only used one large mayan onion though as opposed to three onions, and the dish still seemed about half onion. Three would have made it an onion dish garnished with rice. Also, I didn't want to buy a huge, expensive bottle of orange zest, so I substituted a tablespoon of orange juice concentrate for the zest.
Very good rice dish, with a lot of different flavors that complement each other very well. The only problem I had with this recipe is my onions didn't 'carmelize', unless that is another word for 'burned'. Luckily I caught that in time to save most of them. I didn't have any orange, so just added a couple tablespoons of orange juice, but I think the zest would work best. I recommend trying this dish if you like the ingredients it requires.
Fine without the orange zest (didn't have any). The only concern is the amount of liquid left in the bottom of the rice after steaming; I am used to the rice soaking up the entire amount and not having to drain it. I might use less broth next time. But this was delish!
I love this dish. Probably one of my favorite things I have made from this site. Great combination of flavors.
