Baked Beef Rice, Ruthie style

Okay, so y'all know I'm reading A Soft Place To Land by Susan Rebecca White and it's the best book I've read in a long, long time.  Ruthie, the younger of the two sisters, loves to cook and entertain like her mama did and the night she finds out her parents have died, just before they get that dreaded call, she's cooking supper for her grandma.  Chicken breasts baked in cream of mushroom soup and baked beef rice.  Rice cooked in beef consomme soup with chopped onions, a dash of Worcestershire sauce (or rooster sauce, as we call it in the Schneider house) and butter.  I made some today!  I used brown rice, though, instead of white rice so it had to bake a little longer than an hour to get done.  Yum yum!!!

This is how you make it!

Just toss a cup of rice into a baking dish

 Add a can of beef consomme soup

 Add a dash of rooster sauce (I'd say a tablespoon)

Add four tablespoons of butter 

 Toss in some chopped onion and mix it all together
Bake at 350 degrees for an hour
(add a half cup of water and bake another half hour
if you're cooking brown rice)

It is delicious!!!

I'm going to make this to take to my mama and daddy's next month for their birthday dinner party.  This will go great with those hamburger steaks Daddy's gonna grill!!  I'll make it with white rice then and I'll make a separate dish without onions for Ami and Brian.  :)
