Since I live in a part of the world where rice is the staple food, I know lots of ways to cook it. If you want "spanish style rice" here is a version, you fry it in a wok, smother it with tomato sauce, add little "Pik ee noo" peppers (small red thai chili's) and some chopped green bell peppers, put in a little pre fried pork, beef or chicken, you can add onions but I don't like 'em, make sure you use sunflower oil.
add some "hot sauce" and make sure you got lots of water.

I also make something called Arroz con carne & frejoles (Rice, meat and beans) stir fry hamburger bits in tomato sauce, add red kidney beans ,chopped tomato, bell peppers, chopped black olives, basil and oregano (a pinch,) some black pepper, plain white rice from a rice cooker, stir and serve. You can make it hot with chili sauce.

make sure you got lots of water, or milk, your mouth will be o fire, you can tone it down it you don;t like hot food.

If you leave out the tomato sauce and add more oil you will have Thai or Malay style stir fried rice, get some lemon and it squeeze over it before serving.

You're in luck. I have been cooking Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Jamaican cuisine for years. They all do Spanish Rice. I'll dig through my notes and post it.

Bert - I am still waiting.... :'( :'( :'(

I think Solar needs a smile of someone tapping there foot.  For the ladies it would come in handy.

Can be prepared in 40 minutes or less. One of my mother's signature dishes is her Spanish rice, a delicious accompaniment to steak, chicken, and Mexican entrees such as tacos or enchiladas. Spanish rice is prepared by browning the rice first with onions and garlic, before cooking it in chicken broth with added tomato. The browning is essential to the nutty, almost toasty flavor of the rice. And although bouillon can be substituted for the chicken stock, nothing beats homemade chicken stock, the rich flavor of which is absorbed by the rice.

2 tablespoons olive oil (can use up to 1/4 cup)
1 onion, chopped fine
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups of medium or long-grain white rice
3 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock if vegetarian)
1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste or 1 cup of diced fresh or cooked tomatoes
Pinch of oregano
1 teaspoon salt

In a large skillet brown rice in olive oil, medium/high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook onion rice mixture, stirring frequently, about 4 minutes, or until onions are softened.

In a separate sauce pan bring stock to a simmer. Add tomato sauce, oregano, and salt. Add rice to broth. Bring to a simmer. Cover. Lower heat and cook 15-25 minutes, depending on the type of rice and the instructions on the rice package. Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes.

Thank you Flemen.  I have been experimenting with a few and this sounds like a good one to try.  Toy  :smile: :thumbsup:
