Foil Packet Side Dish - Savory Rice
The optional ingredient in this one is the wine. If all you have on hand is red wine and you’re not into pink or purple rice, then just swap in an extra quarter cup of stock. With a dry white wine, there’s just a hint of extra sophistication some like … and some don’t.
  • 1 cup instant rice
  • ¾ cup stock (chicken, beef, vegetable, seafood – whatever you like)
  • ¼ cup wine (whatever you like)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • butter
  1. In large bowl, combine the rice and liquid ingredients.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Let stand for five minutes.
  4. Drain any liquid that hasn’t been absorbed into rice.
  5. Place rice evenly onto four sheets of aluminum foil.
  6. Fold and seal LOOSE packets around rice, allowing room for rice to expand as it cooks.
  7. Cut a couple of small holes on top of each packet to allow steam to escape as they cook.
  8. Place packets with holes up on bed of hot coals.
  9. Cook for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove and carefully open packets. Add pad of butter to each and allow it to melt in.
