Step 1

In a large pot over medium heat add rice and cook 5 minutes. Add onion and cook until onion is tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 additional minute.

Step 2

Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low-boil, cover and simmer until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Note, some long grain rice takes longer than others to cook. Uncle Ben's takes about 20 minutes


Step 3

Fluff with a fork and serve. If desired, garnish with chopped cilantro.
