“Not your Average Butter Rice” is absolutely amazing. Anyone who knows me will agree that rice is my go to dinner source. It’s easy, it’s good and it is filling! Plus, it is completely cheap when you are feeding a large family of hungry animals. By animals I mean children.
Feel free to check out my Dinnertime Horror post for a look into my crazy world of picky eaters.
I have really upped my rice game. I am such a rice fanatic. Butter Rice, Fried Rice, Sticky Rice, you name it I cook it. One recipe I always get asked for is my Butter Rice recipe. This is not your average butter rice. It is a million times better than anything I’ve ever tried. Test it out and let me know what you think! Caution this is not for you if you don’t like good food! ha ha!
Not your Average Butter Rice
- 5tbsp of butter (real legit butter)
- 2 cups of extra long grain rice
- 3 1/2 cups water
- chicken bouillon
- Dash of onion salt.
- Salt and Pepper to taste
*I use 1 chicken bouillon cube to 3 1/2 cups of water. Let the cube dissolve*
Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add rice and sprinkle around onion salt. Saute for a few minutes (don’t let it turn brown). Add water / chicken bouillon. Stir and cover. Cook for about 15min -20min. Turn off the burner and let sit for 5 minutes. Salt and Pepper to taste, Fluff rice and serve.
It is that simple. If you want to spice it up a bit, I always add dried cilantro leaves. I am telling you, you will NEVER go back to boring butter rice again. Best recipe ever!
