Not my favorite. The rice was too wet for my taste. I thought it was going to be drier, more like a pilaf. Instead it was a mushy, sticky mess. Flavor was okay, but a bit bland, even though I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic and 1 onion and added them to the mixture before putting in the oven. I also covered the rice like other reviewers said, but maybe I will try again cooking it uncovered like the recipe states.
Also, after an hour covered in the oven, the rice was only about 3/4 of the way cooked. I uncovered it and continued cooking for another 20 minutes or so to finish cooking the rice and to try to evaporate the extra liquid. If I try it again and follow the original recipe more closely, I will update my review and rating accordingly.
