Ms. Mandry’s Yellow Rice – Arroz Amarillo

Ms. Mandry’s Yellow Rice – Arroz Amarillo
12 Servings
Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons garlic sofrito
3 cups rice, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon sazon
2 teaspoons sea salt
Boiling water to cover by 1 inch
Method
In a heavy large pot with a tight fitting lid, heat the oil. Add the garlic and onion/pepper sofrito and sauté over medium heat until all liquid is absorbed. Add the rice and continue sautéing about 3 minutes. Add the boiling water, just enough to cover the rice by about 1 inch. Bring the pot up to a boil lower the heat to a simmer and cover with a tight lid. If you do not have a tight fitting lid, cover the pot first with foil and then put on the lid. Crimp foil around the pot so that no seam is escaping. Cook rice 15 minutes then redistribute the rice by gently folding/turning it from the bottom of the pot to the top with a large fork. If rice is done, cover and remove it from the heat.
If it needs more time, add more water if needed and continue cooking checking and redistributing every 15 minutes and rice is done.
Note: I always use a long grain brow rice therefore the rice will not be yellow. It also takes approximately 45 minutes to cook.
