Garlic Rice

Garlic Rice

by Pam on May 8, 2013

I wanted to serve rice with the Indonesian Pork Tenderloin[1] and Indonesian Cucumber Salad[2] that I served for dinner but I didn’t want it to be plain rice. I found a recipe on Life’s Ambrosia[3] that sounded perfect. We all love garlic in my house so this rice would go over well with all of us and I thought it would pair nicely with the rest of the meal. It was super simple to make and tasted fantastic – I honestly don’t think I will be making plain rice again.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the rice and cook, stirring often so the rice doesn’t stick to the pan, for 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken broth and season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. Cover and let cook 20 minutes.

Remove the rice from the burner without removing the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve. Enjoy.

Indonesian Cucumber Salad

Indonesian Cucumber Salad

by Pam on May 6, 2013

I was looking for a light and tasty salad to go with the pork tenderloin I was making for dinner when I came across several different variations for an Indonesian cucumber salad. I decided to make my own version using cucumber, red onion, and cilantro. I used seasoned rice vinegar with a touch of sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, and sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper to season the cucumbers.  This recipe couldn’t have been easier to make and it tasted great! I loved how light and refreshing it was and so did the rest of my family, especially my daughter, who absolutely loved it.

Combine the sliced cucumber, red onion, and cilantro in a dish. Add the rice vinegar, sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, and sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste. Gently mix until well combined. Cover and place into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy.

Side Note: If you keep it in the refrigerator longer, make sure to stir it every once in awhile so the cucumbers are evenly coated with the vinegar.
