From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...While on our last adventure, there came an evening when I promised the Silver Fox he would not have to eat rice for a month once we returned home. He was trying to negotiate a year, but I have standards and held my ground. The contract was for one rice free month. I want those who witnessed that negotiation to know I'm not reneging on my promise. This recipe was made, photographed and tested long before we left for the mountain kingdoms and I planned to use it while I caught my breath and life here returned to normal. Today was a catch my breath day kind of day and I thought it would be a great time to share this simple flavorful rice with you. While it is Chinese in origin, it is one of those ethnic dishes that go well with almost everything, particularly pork roasts and chops. The recipe needs no set up or explanation and I can unequivocally recommend the rice to you. Try it, you'll like it! Here is how it is made.
