Fool Proof Stick of Butter Rice
If you have cooked rice before and had a difficult time getting it perfect, this dish is especially for you. It is fail-proof, you are guaranteed the most delicious perfectly cooked rice.
Do You Use A Whole Stick of Butter
You will use eight tablespoons of butter, I know it might sound like a lot, but trust me. This recipe is outstanding and the butter supplies liquid that your rice soaks up to help add more flavor to the rice recipe.
What Rice to Use for Stick of Butter Rice
I use uncooked white rice. I find it soaks up nicely and cooks evenly. If you were to use different rice you might have to adjust the liquid content so it works. I can’t fully say if other grains of rice work.
What to Pair With Rice
This recipe is great to eat alone if you want a meatless dish. Or pair it with any type of pork, steak, chicken, and more. We have paired it with baked chicken, pork tenderloin and the list continues. This rice dish is super versatile.
Can I Double Stick of Butter Rice Recipe
Absolutely. This recipe doubles nicely. Just reach for a 9×13 pan to use for doubling. You don’t want the rice mixture too thick in a pan or it will take longer to cook.
How to Store Leftover Rice
Place any leftovers you may have in an airtight container and place them in the fridge. Your rice will store for 3-4 days. At that time toss out any leftovers you may have. I do recommend using your best judgment on if your rice has gone bad or not.
Is it Safe to Reheat Rice
Yes, you can Reheat rice and serve it. Whether you microwave or warm in a pan or stove either works. Just make sure if using the pan method you add in some broth if the rice seems dry.
Also, make sure to never hear rice up more than once as that will allow bacteria to begin to grow,
Will Stick if Butter Rice Freeze
You can freeze a stick of butter rice but know when you thaw and Reheat the texture could be slightly different.
For freezing place in a freezer-friendly container and toss in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge the night before you plan to hear or warm up from frozen.
You might need to add in the extra broth if the rice seems dry.
