Elevate plain rice to something a little more special with the help of just a few ingredients. If you don't have a wild rice blend, or are short on time, substitute three cups of cooked instant rice. Serve with pork loin, beef tenderloin, duck, or chicken.
I'm always looking for good side dishes, and this is a winner. I didn't have shallots, so I used onions, and it turned out delicious. Tasted even better the next day. Definitely will be making this again.
I had never tried Cremini Mushrooms before. I was nervous when making this recipe because when I tested the shallot cremini saute, it seemed so mild with no seasoning. And the rice seemed terribly oversalted. I hoped those would balance each other out, and they did. I might try adding the sherry and salt to the sautee once the mushrooms have gotten the outer color they need just to bring out the flavor of the mushrooms more, but otherwise, I would make this again as is with any red meat.
