Delicious Rice Pilaf

If you like rice... you will LOVE this recipe.  If you don't like rice, I think you will still enjoy this recipe.
This rice pilaf is easy, quick, and extremely yummy.  It has a hearty flavor from the beef broth, and then a sweetness from the dried cranberries.  My husband and kids even love this pilaf.

Here are the details:
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped celery
1 tbsp. butter

*put in large sauce pan and saute until tender

1 cup (I used 1 1/2 cups) long grain rice
1/3 cup (I used 1/2 cup) dried cranberries

*add to above mixture and brown for a few minutes

2 cups beef broth

*add and bring to a boil.
reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes
until rice is tender and fluffy

Not only is this easy, but it's cheap.  It makes enough for a family of 5 and is filling.  I use it as a side dish with my pork loins.  You can accompany chicken or chops with this pilaf.  It merries well with everything (maybe not tacos... or pizza.  just sayin').

I haven't posted a recipe lately here at The Quick Journey, so take that as a sign that this one is worth trying!!
