Rice on the Grill Recipe

Rice on the Grill Recipe

My husband loves to barbecue, so when it's hot outside, we do entire meals on the grill. Since our kids love rice, we often include this tangy side dish as part of the menu. —Shirley Hopkins, Olds, Alberta

"I made this last night for my husband and I and was pleasantly surprised how GOOD this is as I am not a fan of instant rice (the rice didn't seem "instant" at all in this recipe) I mixed the ingredients in another bowl separately and then added to the foil pan, I also used a cup of chicken broth and green onions, I had a large 2nd helping of this rice, I loved the flavors of this, I will be making this a lot this Summer when I BBQ which is often! Thank you for a easy, great rice recipe!"

"My husband and I loved this, I tweaked it a bit due to some other reviewers input. Instead of ketchup I used my favorite sweet and spicy bbq sauce and I also used brown rice, I put a splash of soy sauce in too. Instead of water I used 1 cup of chicken broth. This turned out so tasty, it will be a staple in my grilling sides from now on!"

"I just used the idea! Used 3 cups of leftover cooked rice, sautéed the onions, peppers and mushrooms. Also added sautéed celery &, carrots, frozen peas and drained/rinsed water chestnuts. Did not need the water but still used 1/2 c of chicken broth and used 2 TBLSP of soy sauce. Could probably use teriyaki sauce or sweet and sour sauce. I followed the rest of the instructions.....not too shabby!"

"We did not care for this. May try this again using brown rice- non "minute rice". May add more vegetable for more flavor."

"I rated it average, because it was not our favorite...but would try it again with some different sauces because it was convenient to do on the grill! Tried a BBQ sauce but didn't really care for that. Will try with ketchup next time or different flavor bbq."

"I made some changes.. I didn't have instant rice, so I used regular rice. I used turkey stock that I had made and frozen after Thanksgiving instead of chicken. I didn't have mushrooms, but I did have carrot and celery sticks. Used bbq sauce instead of ketchup and used a rectangle pan instead of a round one. VERY yummy. I'm so pleased that this is an adaptable recipe and am keeping it in my cache for the next time Hubby fires up the grill."

"Perfect for a summer BBQ. I was looking for something to cook along with the outdoor meal, this worked great in a pan on the side burner. It was moist, and I had mushrooms and celery and spices in there. Wasn't any leftovers."

"I loved this recipe my 3 year devoured her rice and went for 2nds. I used the instant brown rice as well. It would be delicious with some broccoli."

MY REVIEW

"i used beef broth, red onion and brown rice. i also added chopped carrots. i doubled the liquid the 2nd time i made it since the rice was quite tender enough and it slightly burned the 1st time, just make sure the pan is deep enough not to spill over!"
