I admit, the title of this recipe could be more enticing, but this is actually a nice, simple one-dish meal and it makes a lot of food. I’m still really excited about the fact that I can make edible rice without a rice cooker! I know white rice is pretty much a nutritional wasteland, but since we bought a GIANT bag of white rice when we first moved in (and it cooks nice and quickly) I need to find lots of ways to use it up.
I love the sauce for this, and next time I’ll probably double the amount I make. It’s superb with a few dashes of hot sauce, if you like spicy food!
