This was SO easy, and turned out really very tasty. I found it on the internet, I believe at the AllRecipes website. It calls for the rice to be cooked for 7 hours in a slow cooker. I opted to adjust it and cook on the stovetop. Delish and full of flavor.
2 1/4 cups water
1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed beef consomme, undiluted
1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed French onion soup, undiluted
3 (4 ounce) cans mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 cup uncooked wild rice **
** At my market I found a wild rice and rice medley. I used two cups of this instead of the called for 1 cup of brown and 1 cup of wild rice.
Melt the butter in a sauce pan that has a tight fitting lid. Add the rice and stir until combined.
Add the soups, water and mushrooms. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cover.
Cook until the liquid evaporates - approximately 50 -60 minutes.
