Just like my Grandma made it!
This is awesome! I am the only one in my family's generation that does it right. My mom and aunt tried cooking it differently...not the same. My problem is adding too much liquid. My grandma also passed last year and I have no one to ask advice. I understand that Puerto Rican food is "a little bit of this and that mixed together", but your cooking style made mine more like Grandma's. Everyone (family, friends,coworkers etc.) loves this rice, thanks,
