Margery’s Brown Rice

It’s National Rice Month. Rice is a beautiful, delicious, and nutritious complement to any meal. For fun this month why not try a different type of rice? Saffron, jasmine, or basmati rice will give your usual meal a new yummy taste.  Listed below is an old family recipe I have made for over 40 years. It is always delicious and a real crowd-pleaser. If you’re vegetarian you can substitute vegetable for beef ingredients. This dish reheats well so you can also bake this rice dish way before an event. Hungry yet? Check out the  Margery’s brown rice recipe below.
