Butter Garlic Herb Rice

Butter Garlic Herb Rice

Sometimes steamed rice just don’t cut it with the dish you are serving so you think of ways to give additional flavours to that staple. Maybe you made some creamy dish like some seafood or meats with some creamy sauce but you don’t know what rice you want to pair with them. You thought of making sinangag but that’s good for fried dishes, then you thought of making some java rice but that’s good for grilled meats, how about some full on fried rice? Well that’s and all in one dish on its own. I have a solution for you and it’s this Butter Garlic Herb Rice.

Like sinangag this Butter Garlic Herb Rice is cooked with loads of garlic but instead of just stir frying it with oil we use butter together with some herbs and freshly ground black pepper making it a perfect pair to any creamy dishes that you may think of.

    Oh? So this is stir-fried, eh? I wonder if there is garlic rice, cooked in a rice cooker version. I do stir fry as well, using garlic butter. Pretty nice too.

  2. I love the simplicity of this recipe and also the earthy added flavors such as garlic and parsley… and yes, butter gives to the dish much more flavor than oil would.

  3. Mmmmm – fab Raymund – love how this is so easy but would be so delicious – going to give it a try tonight:-)

  5. Oh yeah a little butter makes everything taste better. Simple and delicious.

  6. Wow Raymund, this looks so fragrant and delicious! Agree with Bobbi, butter makes everything better, it’s the savoury equivalent of chocolate I believe!
