"This is the easiest and best tasting side dish ever. It goes really well with roast, pork chops, or a rotisserie chicken. I have taken this recipe to tons of parties for over 7 years and everyone loves it!!!"

uncooked white rice
1 (10.5 ounce) can
condensed French onion soup
1 (10.5 ounce) can
I make this a lot. The only change I make is instead of the onion soup I use a pack of Lipton's Onion soup mix. (I add one can of water)
The rice was fairly flavorful. I'm only giving it 3 stars because it tasted a lot like pre-made onion soup and it was pretty boring. Not surprising, but next time I'll make it with just beef broth and add caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. I'll try making it in a rice cooker and report back.
I got so many compliments on and requests for this recipe! I used half the amount of butter called for, low sodium broth, added some sauteed mushrooms and used half brown rice. Also, when it was time to remove the foil, I stirred everything again. It was delicious - thanks!
BRAVO!!! So simple to make and with such delicious results! I love it... mix it all in a pan and forget about it. It sounded too simple to be good, but I was wrong to think that. I used 1 can of Campbell's French Onion Soup and 1 can of low sodium beef broth. (There's plenty of sodium already from the Campbell's soup!) When I took the foil off for the last 30 minutes of baking, I added a cup of frozen peas and some chopped scallions. It was perfect. Not too watery and not sticky; just the exact right texture. This was WAY easier than my other fried rice recipes, and just as tasty! I will be making this one again for sure!
The first time I prepared this dish I found the taste to be a little flat. So, the next time I made it I replaced the can of beef broth with a can of beef consome, and added a small can of mushrooms and a finely chopped onion. It turned out much better.. enjoy.
Really great rice recipe. I used Onion soup mix and added 1 cup of water instead of using the can of condensed French Onion Soup because I didn't have any. I also added mushrooms like others suggested. Yummy and really easy.
Delicious, even without changing a thing! This is an easy side dish that can really dress up a "plain meat" meal. Be sure to cover it tightly and for the full 30 minutes (or more) or you could get crunchy rice (which happened to me the first time I made it).
This is one of the best recipes I've ever made. I followed the instructions completely, except I only put it in for fifty minutes. Even then it was REALLY burnt on top and the sides. I think 35-40 minutes is more than enough.
