Quick & Easy Rice Dish

I always seem to make rice with dinner on Fridays.  Mainly because Dillon doesn’t like rice and if I make rice for dinner when he’s eating with us he won’t eat that part lol.  Yes, he is a fuss ass.  No matter, I made rice again this past Friday…. a recipe I have made many different times and is always a hit!

Feel free to add whatever you like to personalize it to your tastes. I shredded the remaining pork tenderloin and added it to the leftover rice for a quick and delicious lunch the next day.



Here are the ingredients I used for it… yes, 5 whole ingredients lol!


I put everything but the parmesan cheese into a large, microwave safe bowl.


Stirred it up….


And then cooked it in the microwave on high heat for about 5 – 7 minutes until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is nice and fluffy.


I sprinkled the parmesan cheese on top and then served it with a nice seasoned pork tenderloin, drizzled with ranch dressing (sauce) and vegetables!

  1. I have been looking for a crockpot here in Sicily for ages but they don’t sell it anywhere. I guess I have to get it online. Wonderful risotto, looks so tasty!
