This is the easiest and best tasting side dish ever. It goes really well with roast, pork chops, or a rotisserie chicken. I have taken this recipe to tons of parties for over 7 years and everyone loves it!!!

I make this a lot. The only change I make is instead of the onion soup I use a pack of Lipton's Onion soup mix. (I add one can of water) Delish! Read More

BRAVO!!! So simple to make and with such delicious results! I love it... mix it all in a pan and forget about it. It sounded too simple to be good, but I was wrong to think that. I used 1 can of Campbell's French Onion Soup and 1 can of low sodium beef broth. (There's plenty of sodium already from the Campbell's soup!) When I took the foil off for the last 30 minutes of baking, I added a cup of frozen peas and some chopped scallions. It was perfect. Not too watery and not sticky; just the exact right texture. This was WAY easier than my other fried rice recipes, and just as tasty! I will be making this one again for sure! Read More

I got so many compliments on and requests for this recipe! I used half the amount of butter called for, low sodium broth, added some sauteed mushrooms and used half brown rice. Also, when it was time to remove the foil, I stirred everything again. It was delicious - thanks! Read More

The first time I prepared this dish I found the taste to be a little flat. So, the next time I made it I replaced the can of beef broth with a can of beef consome, and added a small can of mushrooms and a finely chopped onion. It turned out much better.. enjoy. Read More

Really great rice recipe. I used Onion soup mix and added 1 cup of water instead of using the can of condensed French Onion Soup because I didn't have any. I also added mushrooms like others suggested. Yummy and really easy. Read More

So my hubby and I liked this rice a lot. "This is what I'm talking about" he said when he tasted it. He likes the boxed rice and I won't buy them 'cause they're expensive. I ended up changing the recipe quite a bit simply because I found it last minute and had to go with what was available. I used a 14.5 oz can regular strength beef broth, 3/4 c. water, a package of dry onion soup mix, 2 T butter. I added an extra 1/2 c. rice just based on personal preference-the amount of liquid in the original recipe seemed like a lot. I had to cook it on the stove as the oven was in use. Boiled the liquids, soup, and butter, added the rice and turned to medium-low for 15 minutes, then turned off the heat and let it rest for another 15 minutes. I make all my white rice this way and it turns out great each time. I don't usually change recipes like that right off the bat, but I had to this time. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Delicious even without changing a thing! This is an easy side dish that can really dress up a "plain meat" meal. Be sure to cover it tightly and for the full 30 minutes (or more) or you could get crunchy rice (which happened to me the first time I made it). Read More

This is one of the best recipes I've ever made. I followed the instructions completely except I only put it in for fifty minutes. Even then it was REALLY burnt on top and the sides. I think 35-40 minutes is more than enough. Read More

Made this rice for dinner we liked the flavor. I used one package of Lipton's dry Onion Soup one can of Campbell's Beef Consume one can of water and one cup of dry white long grain rice. I used the full 1/2 cup of butter but it ended up being much too oily for us. I will try using only 2 tablespoons of butter next time. I will also follow another reviewer's idea & add a cup of peas next time maybe some fresh mushrooms & some green onions chopped up & sprinkled on top. Maybe a bit of garlic powder too. Read More
