Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

  3. I found this recipe back in 2017 and I had to ask "where have you been all my life?" It's easy and flavorful, I however like to add 1 more cup of rice and 1 can of water it mellows out the flavor and cooks the rice thoroughly. I LOVE THIS RICE!
    THANK YOU! My family loves it also we have it at least once every couple months!
