Rice Porridge

1 1/2 Cup Long Grain Rice
6 Cups Chicken Broth
4 Chopped Bacon Strips
1/2 Chopped Onion
4 Minced Garlic Cloves
1 tbsp Butter
Black Pepper

I’m always looking for easy rice dishes in the kitchen. Rice is cheap and porridge is easy to make. Here’s a simple rice porridge that was inspired by Chinese congee.

In a 2 qt saucepan over medium heat, render the bacon until it’s soft and then add onion and garlic. When onion and garlic are cooked, add the chicken broth and 2 cups of water. Bring it to a boil and then add rice. Let the rice cook for around 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes so it doesn’t burn at the bottom. Once the water has reduced and the rice is cooked, bring the heat down to medium-high. Let the rice continue to cook for another 30 minutes or until it has reached porridge consistency. Continue to add water as needed. At the very end, add in butter, salt and pepper to taste. This recipe serves about 4 weightlifters. Enjoy.
