Just 4 simple, pantry staple ingredients make up this rice side dish that will blow your mind! Kids and adults alike will be begging you to make it again!
Yeah, you read that title correctly… stick of butter rice. This rice dish is my family’s favorite rice recipe… EVER. And I’m betting that once you try it, it’ll be your favorite too! Guess how many ingredients are in this rice? C’mon guess! Okay, here’s the answer….. 4. 4 ingredients. Hello simple side dish!
The other best part about this recipe, is that it’s completely fool-proof and incredibly low maintenance. Even if you say you can’t cook… you can cook this. I guarantee it. My 5 year old has made this before (all I did was the oven part).
You may have these ingredients on hand, which makes this recipe even more awesome! Granted… this isn’t a health-food side dish (I mean, c’mon… it’s called stick of butter rice) lol… but honestly, I say go for it. We all need an indulgence, and it’s GOOD.
Around our house this dish is referred to as “brown rice” by my daughter, and if she had her way, we would eat this rice every single day lol. It doesn’t matter what else I serve with it… if this rice is on the table, it’s “the best meal ever!! Brown rice!!”. And that right there, makes Mama happy 😀
This rice isn’t cooked on the stove top like most rice recipes are… it’s baked in the oven. So no burner is being taken up on your stove and you can slide the pan in the oven and forget about it 🙂 Okay, well maybe not completely forget about it lol. But it bakes for an hour and all you have to do is remove the foil after 30 minutes. Simple right?
So here’s the breakdown… long grain white rice, can of beef broth, stick of butter, and a can of condensed french onion soup. That’s it!
Cover with foil and bake at 425 for 30 minutes. Take off foil and bake another 30 minutes.
Honestly, this dish looks pretty gross right? The old saying “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” applies here… so don’t judge a rice dish by it’s looks. Just take a bite and I promise you, you’ll forget alllllllll about how it looks 😀
This rice would go really well with my Parmesan Crusted Chicken Nuggets, Jack Daniels Glazed Baked Chicken Wings , or Low Carb Baked Chicken Tenders 🙂 A great add-in would be to add a can of sliced mushrooms to the mix… I haven’t tried it yet, because the kids would balk at that lol.
