A couple of years ago I got a rice cooker for Christmas. It was one of the most useful gifts I have ever received. We use at least once a week. However, with this new recipe we may be using it even more. I have been looking for an all-in-one side dish recipe, that I could just dump into the rice cooker. I was unable to find a recipe that worked for my needs. So I decided to make my own super easy recipe. Just add the ingredients into the rice cooker and start it up. It does not get any easier than that. This herb rice may be the best rice that I have ever made.
We recently got a new rice cooker. It is a zojirushi rice cooker and it is freaking awesome! and I wanted to expand our repertoire of rice dishes beyond just white long grain rice. So I decided to come up with a new recipe that would utilize the rice cooker but impart a ton of flavor. So I substituted the water for chicken broth and then added herbs and onions to enhance the flavors. This was some of the tastiest rice I have ever made.
In the last few weeks since Black Friday, there have been crazy deals on everything from toasters to turkeys. One ad that we saw had Standing Rib Roasts for $4.99 a pound. Not too shabby. So, this year Dana and I thought that we would change things up a bit and cook a Standing Rib Roast for our holiday meal. It was the best decision that we made. It was freaking awesome! Who doesn’t love a huge hunk of meat covered in a fresh herb rub and roasted to perfection!
