Brazilian Rice

In honor of the premiere of The Amazing Race, MIl and FIL came over for dinner and we wanted to do something special. I searched to see what the first destination was and decided to do a Brazilian theme for fun. We did this with Brazilian BBQ Beef Shish Kabobs.

Arroz Branco (Brazilian Style Rice)
Google… the web site was in Portuguese

Ingredients

1 Tablespoon of oil
1 small chopped onion (it ended up being about 1/4 cup chopped onion)
1 carrot, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 cup rice
1 can chicken broth, boiling
1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and carrot until onions are tender.
  2. Add rice and saute until rice is browned. Note: This took a lot longer than I expected, but I had read that it was important to do this, so I just kept the rice moving.
  3. Add garlic and salt. Saute for about 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in chicken broth. 
  5. Turn down the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed. I stirred occasionally so that the rice didn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Let the rice rest for about 10 minutes, serve and enjoy!

We enjoyed the rice, and we are still enjoying the leftovers. Another keeper.
