Recommended Posts

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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
