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.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
