Recipe for Pilav (Steamed Sauted Rice)


2 tablespoon butter
4 tablespoon butter; melted
1 cup rice, white; long or medium grain, uncooked
2 cup chicken stock; fresh or can
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 black pepper; freshly ground


In a heavy 2 to 3 quart saucepan, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter over moderate heat. when the foam begins to subside, add the rice and stir for 2 or 3 minutes until all the grains are evenly coated. Do not let the rice brown. Pour in the stock, add the salt and a few grindings of pepper, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to its lowest point. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender but still slightly resistant to the bite. Pour in the 4 tablespoons of melted butter and toss the rice with a fork until the grains glisten. Drape a towel over the rice and let it stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.
