Ingredients

2 cups white rice
oil
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 can chicken broth (about ten ounces)
water (5 ounces)
1 small can tomato sauce (about 8 ounces)
1/2 an onion (take an onion, peel, cut in half, that's it)


Brown the uncooked rice and garlic in oil in a pot. Add salt and pepper. After a couple of minutes, add the can of broth, refill the can about halfway with water and also add the water and then add the tomato sauce. You can stir it once, but after that, do NOT stir! It will be tempting, but don't do it. Put the onion right on top so it just looks like a dome sitting in the pan. Put the top on the pot. Let it all boil, watching it closely. When most of the liquid is evaporated, lower the heat to really low. Once the liquid is totally gone, it's ready. Keep the top on the pot until it's ready to serve. Discard the onion (it was just for flavor). Enjoy!

Notes

I can't make it nearly as well as my mom, but I try. This is simple, but if you don't follow the "DON'T STIR" instruction, it won't come out right.

Here's the recipe:
