Every September Salt Lake has an amazing Greek Festival. Back in 2001 I got a pamphlet of Greek recipes from the festival. This rice pilaf is very similar to the rice pilaf served at my favorite Greek restaurant. Opa!
- Heat butter in a heavy skillet. When it's hot, add the rice and, stirring constantly, saute on medium heat until transparent but not brown.
- Add the lemon juice, chicken broth, and salt.
- Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the heat and let pilaf stand uncovered for 5 minutes before serving.
