A friend cooked this at our weekly poker game and it was wonderful! I made it for a few other friends and they said it was the best rice they've ever had!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring 2 cups water and wild rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, 30 to 45 minutes. Drain excess liquid, fluff rice with a fork, and cook uncovered, about 5 minutes more.

  • Bring 1/2 water and brown rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 45 minutes.

  • Combine cherries, brown sugar, and almonds in a large nonstick skillet; cook and stir over medium heat until brown sugar melts and coats cherries and almonds, about 6 minutes. Stir in brown rice, wild rice, celery, orange juice, red wine vinegar, and orange zest. Cook, stirring frequently, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute frozen cherries for the fresh cherries if desired.

8.22.18 You do have a lot of pans for a side dish clean up, but I think it’s worth the effort. I didn’t deviate at all from this recipe, and the only thing that I would change would be to cut back on the brown sugar, but admittedly, that’s probably personal taste preference. You get a nice chew from the wild rice, a good crunch from the celery and almonds, the red wine vinegar perks it all up, and the OJ and zest brighten the overall flavor. I think this would be awesome with roast pork. This is just a really nice rice dish that I wouldn’t hesitate to serve to company. TANYABOP, thanks for sharing your friend’s recipe, and I must say this is quite a treat for a weekly poker game. Read More
