Stick of Butter Rice Ingredients

Rice: Use long-grained white rice for this recipe, like jasmine or basmati. It separates better than medium or short-grained rice, which easily sticks together. 

French Onion Soup: Use a can of condensed French onion soup.

Beef Consomme: Condensed Beef consomme is more condensed than beef broth and has a stronger flavor. In a pinch, you could substitute beef broth or beef stock. Look for it in the grocery store where you would find other cans of condensed soup.

Butter: Yes, you are using one stick of butter and dividing it into 9 pats. I know you are thinking, ‘why not just cut it into the eight tablespoons…’. Well, the reason for nine pats is that you want the pats of the butter to be equally distributed on the top of the rice in a 3×3 pattern.

  1. As with most rice dishes that are casserole-like in nature, you could cook it in the crock pot but it will come out mushy. It is best to stick to this recipe as originally written. The only thing i have done that has been successful is add a small can of drained mushrooms. It adds a nice earthy flavor and provides a little bit of extra texture. (I have been eating, later cooking, this dish since i was a child & I am now almost 50. Just a note to tell how long this stuff has been around. It is just so good!)

    1. Can you make this sick of butter rice in a CROCK POT?
