Arroz Brasileiro
Yield: 10 portions


  • 2½ cups Rice, white long-grained
  • 1¼ oz. Butter
  • 6 oz. Onions, minced
  • 1¼ ea. Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1¼ ea. Cloves whole
  • 4½ cups Water, hot
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Place the rice in a china cap and rinse under cold water until it runs clear. Drain the rice well before adding.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the rice, stirring constantly until the rice has absorbed the butter and the grains are translucent. Add the whole cloves and the hot water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat, season the rice with salt and pepper, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
  4. Remove from the heat, cover and allow to stand 5 minutes until all the moisture is absorbed.
