Ok. So if you’ve been around 30days for the last couple of years, you have most likely seen my Stick of Butter Rice. It was my Great-Grandma’s recipe that my Mom had and I begged her for it years ago because it is my favorite rice of all time. Guess what? When I was at my Mom’s house for Christmas she made an equally awesome rice. It’s so dang simple but oh my word it’s good. And now I’m passing it on to you: 1/2 a Stick of Butter Rice.
Here’s how the scene went down:
Mom was cooking Christmas dunch (dinner/lunch) – Chicken Enchiladas (also our family’s favorite!) and all of the sudden I smell sautéing onions. I immediately say HOW AMAZING the kitchen smelled and talked about how my little family goes nuts (in a really good way) when I saute onions in butter. It’s the little things. Sure enough, everyone starts saying how good it smells in Grammy’s kitchen. We are an easy to please crowd sometimes. Anyway- we proceed to eat a wonderful meal (thank you Mom!) and I tell her that I need the recipe for the rice. It looks like regular rice but it tastes sooooo good. She tells me it’s only a few ingredients and I ask her if I can post it. She says yes.
And that’s how it happened. You can now make this really easy rice recipe that is similar to the Stick of Butter Rice only without the French Onion Soup and you don’t bake it and it’s not the same but oh my goodness it’s sooo good. Maybe I really am easy to please but I think if you cook it this way you will agree that it is fantastic and won’t want to do it another way again.
