2 c
white long grain rice
1/4 c
1 can(s)
12 oz tomato sauce
24 oz
water, cold
2 Tbsp
cooking oil
4 dash(es)
salt and pepper


1Heat skillet or frying pan with the oil, add the rice and onion. Stir constantly until brown.
2After rice is browned, add tomato sauce, and water ( water should completely cover the rice by 1").Heat should be about medium to medium high. Add your salt and pepper to taste. stir gently with fork.
3Wait until it boils, then add lid and turn down the heat to medium. Water will evaporate, fluff with fork. If rice is done there will NOT be any solid white kernels. You may need to add more water if there are uncooked kernels, (just add a 1/4 oz or so not a lot). After that wait for it to evaporate and fluff with fork and serve. Practice makes perfect.
