RICE

9 posts in this topic

Im tired of making just plain brown rice in the steamer.

Anyone know how to spruce it up like the restaurants.

Mexican style or rice pilaf.

Thanks

Get some white rice from the store, wash the amount you want to bake. By that I mean run water over it til the water is clear, it will be cloudy for a few rinses. After that cover the rice withwater about 1/2 inch over the top of the rice. Then add whatever you want, I use some chicken boullion cube and throw in onions, peppers, whatever to spice it up. Cover with tin foil and bake for about 45 min. or til the water is gone thoughout the rice. See if that helps any.

Authentic Mexican rice

1 cup quality white rice-Jasmine is good

1 1/2 cup water

1 large tomato

juice of one lime

dash of cumin and/or chili powder (easy does it)

salt and pepper

Blend tomatoes and water on blender till all the same consistency

Take a 2-3 quart pan and saute the rice for a couple minutes in olive oil sturring constantly

Add the tomato/water mixture and add to the rice, add the other ingredients and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and put a paper bag over the top of the pan and put the pan lid on top of the paper bag. You want some weight on top of the bag, but not too much. Let simmer for 20 minutes. Don't lift bag at all!

When the timer is done, turn off the heat and let stand for another 20minutes. Take off the bag and stir with spoon. If the rice sticks together, put the bag back on until let sit some more until all the individual grains of rice are seperated, not sticking together.

You can serve this with fresh chopped cilantro on top, great with all mexican dishes; fajitas, burritos, tacos, etc.

Tired of brown rice. Make wild rice instead. It is easy to cook and if you get the good stuff not the paddy grown it cooks up in about 15 minutes!

Do an internet search for "Mexican Red Beans and Rice". One of my favorite dishes. If the recipe doesn't have sour cream in it, it isn't an authentic Mexican dish.

Another thing. The recipe may not call for adding sausage, but I like to cut up some spicy Italian brats and add to the mix.

you'll love it.

      leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

      Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness? :eek:  :)

    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is.

      My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.

       

    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani

      • Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday
      • FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

      I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.

      That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)" 

      He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.  

      What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?

       

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.   

      And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?   

      Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?  

      You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
