prep time: 5 MINS cook time: 25 MINS total time: 30 mins
• 2 Tbsp butter
• 1-1/4 cup rice, uncooked
• 1 (12-oz) beer
• 1-1/4 cup water
• 1/2 tsp onion powder
• 1 tsp chopped fresh Thyme
- In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add rice and cook for 5 minutes, until starting to brown. Add beer, water and onion powder. Cover and simmer for 20 to 25
minutes, until liquid is absorbed.
- Add salt as needed
- NOTE: can add ½ cup of Chicken stock with a ½ cup beer for a variation. You can also add sautéed onions with pepper & a little salt to the rice. Served with blackened Chicken & vegetables or crawfish etouffee. Or anything to spice up a dish. I used bottle of Beck’s beer, but this will work with any brand of beer. Make sure to use your favorite beer so you enjoy the flavor.
