I love this rice!  I am actually having some right now.

  • 1/4 lb butter
  • 2 cups uncooked rice (Uncle Ben’s long grain converted rice works well)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 cups hot chicken broth
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

1   Heat butter in a heavy skillet. When it’s hot, add the rice and, stirring constantly, saute on medium heat until transparent but not brown.
2  Add the lemon juice, chicken broth, and salt.
3  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
4  Remove the pan from the heat and let pilaf stand uncovered for 5 minutes before serving.
