(Arroz de Tomate)



  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter or bacon drippings
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and chopped

  • 3 cups beef or chicken broth
  • 2 cups long-grain rice
  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste

  3. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Stir in the rice, salt, and pepper, and cover. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook covered until the rice is done, about 20 minutes.
