Tonight is the 2nd time I've made this recipe. The first time I followed the directions, adding a few more spices and baking it, but the rice never cooked enough and I used a boxed rice mix. So this time I bought a Wegmans whole grain 5 rice blend and cooked that according to the directions on the box, but used the 2 cups of vegetable stock, a 1/4 cup of red wine, basil, tyme and some garlic and onion powder. I sauteed the onions and mushrooms in olive oil and once they were soft added a bag of Giant brand country blend vegetables and let them cook a little. Once the rice was done I mixed it with the veggies. Much better! The rice was done. I got some Tyson braised beef steak in bourbon sauce for my husband and son and they mixed it with the rice and veggies. I'll make this again, but it's better to cook the rice separately and not even bake it.
