  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups uncooked regular long grain rice
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • Two 14 ounce cans chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup carrot sticks, sliced thin
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper


  • Melt 3 Tablespoons butter in a 12 inch skillet under medium heat. Place the rice, onion and salt in the pan with the butter. Cook and stir the ingredients for 8 - 10 minutes, stirring frequently until rice is a light golden brown. Stir in the broth and water. Cook the ingredients until they just come to a boil, remove the pan from the heat.
  • Greaser the inside of a 3 - 4 quart crock pot with butter. Pour the rice mixture into the crock pot. Add the carrots and stir. Make sure the rice is covered with broth and not sticking to the side of the crock pot. Place the lid on the crock pot. Set the crock pot on the low setting, cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add the bell peppers and broccoli to the crock pot. Continue to cook another 30 - 45 minutes on low or until the liquid is absorbed into the rice completely. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any left over rice mixture in a covered bowl in the refrigerator.
