Mushroom Wild Rice
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 3 hours
Bought some beautiful wild rice while in Minnesota. Wanted something earthy and authentic tasting as a side dish that I don't have to tend. This takes 2 minutes to put together, nice enough for company . Delicious beefy flavor, I always use beef broth instead of water & add an extra can of mushrooms. I am going to add cooked sausage or ground beef to make a complete meal at some point. I give it a good shot of pepper before serving, personal preference. One of our favorites.
Been making this for years, its been a potluck favorite at work, only we always called it "dirty rice". I always halve the butter.
Substituted an Onion Soup mix as condensed french onion soup was not an option. Made for a potluck. Was very popular and tasted great.
Kind of bland in my opinion. I did keep the leftovers and will probably add some soy sauce to give it a little more flavor. Smelled wonderful cooking!
Did not care for. I would rather have just plain brown rice or plain wild rice.
I've made this a couple of times and the whole family loves it. It smells so good while cooking it is hard to wait to eat it. It makes a lot. I'm going to try stuffing chicken breasts with the left overs.
This was an excellent dish. I used a 6-qt crockpot, so doubled the recipe, and it was great! I will definitely make this again. I was thinking that I might try adding some pre-cooked sausage to it the next time. Don't be afraid to make this one!
