Beef Flavored Rice

Beef Flavored RiceThis recipe is a very simple side dish. It is not necessarily the star of the show. However, it is a great compliment to a meal without competing with the main entree. I like to make this with Sake Steak or Sake Chicken, with a simple green salad served with ginger dressing. Yum!


  • 1 cup of white rice
  • 1 14.5 oz can beef broth
  • 2 tbs minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tbs butter
  • water


  1. Empty beef broth into a 2 cup measuring cup. Add enough water to the broth to equal 2 cups.
  2. In a saucepan, add the beef broth and water. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add the rice, tightly cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove cover from saucepan and ensure all liquid has been absorbed. If liquid still remains, continue to cook covered on low until all liquid is gone.
  5. Remove from heat, let rest covered for 5 minutes. Remove lid and fluff up with a fork.
  6. Add fresh parsley, salt, pepper and butter. Allow butter to melt in the rice, then stir. Test for seasonings, add more if necessary.
  7. Serve.


- I like adding the butter at the very end because it adds a very nice gloss to the rice.


- Mince (finely chop) the parsley first and then measure the 2 tbs.


- Add some finely chopped carrots and green onions when adding the beef broth to the sauce pan. Omit parsley.
