“Credit for this dish goes to Ruth Ann Klassen of Aberdeen, Idaho who says this recipe came from her husband's grandmother. It's quick to make and very tasty. Hearty helpings of this specially seasoned rice will disappear in a hurry at your dinner table. Note: Cooking time does not include time to cook rice. An option is to use instant brown rice to reduce prep time.”
