Never-Mushy Homemade Rice
-3 Tbs. butter or margarine
-1-1/2 cups white long-grain rice
-1/4 cup dehydrated minced onion flakes
-1 tsp. salt
-3-1/2 cups water
Place 3 Tbs. butter or margarine in the bottom of a large saucepan and set burner heat to MEDIUM.
Measure 1-1/2 cups dry, white, long-grain rice and dump over the melting butter.
Add 1/4 cup dehydrated minced onion flakes and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir all ingredients over burner heat for 10-15 minutes, or until brown flecks begin to appear here and there in the rice.
Once rice mixture has many different shades of brown speckled here and there, add 3-1/2 cups water and cover saucepan.
Cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is mostly tender. Remove from heat and keep covered until all liquid has been absorbed into mixture and rice has completely tenderized.
