Video: Quick Rice Pilaf – Dog Days of Podcasting 2014 – 20/30

August 19th, 2014

Part of the Dog Days of Podcasting 


Another video recipe for this year’s Dog Days of Podcasting – a Quick Rice Pilaf

Quick Rice Pilaf

I used orzo in this recipe, but small pieces of angel hair pasta, or vermicelli are traditional in rice pilaf, too.

2 Tbsp unsalted butter
¼ cup (1-inch pieces) angel hair pasta, vermicelli or orzo
½ yellow onion, finely diced or chopped
1 cup long grain white rice
Coarse salt
1 ½ cups chicken stock, vegetable stock (or water)

Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat.
Add pasta, and stir to coat with butter
Cook (uncovered), stirring until golden , about 2 minutes
Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, about 4 minutes
Add rice, stirring to coat evenly with butter
Add 1 tsp salt, pinch pepper (or to taste)

Pour in stock or water and bring to boil
Cover, and reduce heat to medium low.
Simmer until rice has absorbed all the liquid, about 15 minutes
Remove from heat, let sit 5 minutes, fluff with fork and serve

Previously in the Dog Days of Podcasting 2014:

What is the Dog Days of Podcasting?

“Essentially, it is a challenge to do a podcast for 30 days in a row.

In 2012 Kreg Steppe was looking to give himself a little push in regards to recording his own personal podcast since he wasn’t recording it very often. That turned into a challenge for himself to record a show everyday for 30 days believing that after 30 days it would turn into a habit. Once it was mentioned to Chuck Tomasi he took the challenge too and they decided it would be a great idea to record starting 30 days before Dragon*Con, culminating with the last episode where they would record it together when they saw each other there.”
