Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups stock (chicken, vegetable, or beef) or water
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup minced onion or shallot
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 small dried bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bring stock to a simmer in a small saucepan.

  2. Melt butter in a 2-quart ovenproof saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add rice, bay leaf, and salt and stir well to coat each grain with butter mixture. Cook until rice is fragrant and starting to turn translucent, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.

  4. Add stock and return to a simmer. Transfer to oven, cover, and bake 16 minutes. Remove from oven. Cover and let steam for 10 minutes, then fluff with a fork before serving.
