Arroz Blanco (White Rice) Cuban Style
Known in our family as "Cuban Rice"
2 cups long-grain white rice, uncooked
4 cups water
2 garlic cloves, mashed
2 tsp salt
2 tablespoons peanut oil (we used olive oil)
1 tsp lemon juice
oil in a shallow saucepan (about 3 inches deep and 10 inches
diameter). Fry garlic in hot oil until golden, being careful not to
burn. Discard garlic. Coat rice with oil. Add water, salt, and lemon
juice. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and steam for 18 minutes.
Fluff the rice serve. Serves 6. (Or 3 with seconds - ha!)
varies what he puts in this recipe. Sometimes he adds green pepper.
He also adds onion to it and that adds a unique flavor. Or perhaps you
may want to try some seasoning blends with it. Have a different rice
every time! Fun to play
around with your recipes!!! Sometimes you find you like your version
better than the recipe itself! LOL! It's time for us to have this
again! I'm in the mood for it.
