About this recipe: This is a family favourite that my Greek grandfather used to make! A fabulous alternative to regular rice, but it still goes with everything!
This rice was so tasty and smelled dreamy! I used lurpack instead of real butter, not the best idea but I'm certain would be far better if I had used real butter. I will definitely make this again (with real butter)! Thanks for the recipe! - 24 Aug 2014
Understated, yet fabulous. This last time I made it, I tossed on a layer of finely chopped fresh spinach right after pouring the butter on. It steamed perfectly and added some beatiful color, flavor and nutrition (gotta get it into the toddler somehow!). I also love this recipe because unlike plain rice, the leftovers don't dry out and you can enjoy it several days later. Thank you for this go-to side dish that I can pull out on a moments notice and impress company. - 16 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Hold on while I unclog my arteries. Ah-hem. This is one of the best tasting rice dishes I've ever had. It's simple to make, and the whole family scarfed it down. I made the following changes: One can of chicken broth, one can of vegetable broth (slightly less than 4 cups, but it turned out perfect). I also added a little garlic powder before boiling the rice. I also made mine in my electric skillet which made clean-up a breeze (the butter I burned in a separate pan). Imagine...burning your food on purpose! Who cares, it works! Thanks so much! - 06 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
