I am rating this recipe as 3 stars not as a "good, solid recipe" as the site says. I believe 3 stars could be "has potential". I followed the recipe as directed and ended up with overcooked, mushy rice. One hour of cook time is way too long. The flavor of the rice was good, if you could get past how it looked. My husband thought the dish was potatoes! I've never had rice get this overcooked, but I usually like to follow a recipe the first time as directed.
