Elswet's Rosemary Rice

“This is the perfect side dish for roast chicken, shrimp scampi, or a nice roast (it works so well with pork AND beef!). If used with beef, substitute the chicken broth/bulion cubes for beef flavored ones, and pork bulion for pork. Also, if you don't have the 16-oz can of chicken broth on hand, you can substitute or 2 cups hot water with 6 (flavored to match the meat you're serving) bulion cubes melted within.”
