    Love Spanish Rice and rice in general, but was having trouble cooking rice properly over here. (It's somewhat different from the Carolina I was used to in the US -- maybe it's a longer grain? Dunno, but it would come out watery and hard no matter how long I cooked it by the usual method.) This recipe produced perfect Spanish Rice on the first attempt. Bonus -- the cooking method works very well with other seasonings!

    I always find the rice has a much more authentic flavor if you use lard.

    Thanks for the clarification. I think I cook my rice too fast. I'm going to try your low heat method next time and see the tenderness. Also, I forgot to mention I use Basmati rice, which cooks very fast. But, when I use regular long grain, I think your method must be the key I am missing. How funny, I even stopped using long grain because I was frustrated with its lack of flufiness. Thanks Again.

    It's not 40 minutes of boiling, it barely boils for a few seconds as you add the water, the rest of the time is at low heat, until the water absorbs and the rice cooks. Generally, when I make this it takes about 45 minutes total (prep + cook) so the simmer time may be closer to 30 minutes... I'll time it next time I make it and see how long I let it simmer.

    Hello! Thanks for your recipe... I love spanish rice and make it all the time for my family. My kids call it organge rice! I'm always looking for improvements and saw a 40 minute simmer time. Usually white rice can't sustain 40 minutes 40 minutes correct? Thanks for the clarification.
