275: Portuguese-Style Rice with Rosemary

I happened across the recipe for Portuguese-Style Rice with Rosemary when I already wanted to cook some bacon that I had. This was pretty simple to make. I didn’t measure how much bacon grease I sauteed the onion and spices in; I just used however much was left after I fried 3 slices. I don’t have garlic salt, so I used 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt, leaving out some of the salt even though garlic salt is usually pretty salty. I used about 1 1/3 cups jasmine rice, since I don’t have regular long-grain rice. The jasmine rice cooked up more quickly than the recipe called for.

We both really enjoyed this. Alex thought it tasted like Spanish rice even though it wasn’t colored red. I wouldn’t go that far, but I did enjoy the tomatoes in it paired with the rosemary, chicken broth, and bacon. The bacon drippings in particular gave the rice a good flavor. This was a pretty easy recipe overall, and I’d definitely make it again.
