JoLynn's Mushroom Rice

You MUST put this recipe on your holiday menu for three reasons...are you ready? 1) It's easy and can cook behind the scenes while you prepare the rest of the meal. 2) It is so delicious that EVERY TIME I make it, people call for the recipe. No lie. My kids HATE mushrooms and they eat this anyway. 3) Your house will smell a-mazing while it cooks. I'm serious. You will wish you could eat the smell. You will want to lay down in your kitchen and breathe deeply.
1/2 c. butter
5-6 chopped green onions
1 tsp. oregano
1 small can mushrooms
2 c. rice (NOT instant)
3 can Campbells Beef Consumme *
2 cups water

Melt butter in small saucepan. Add onion, oregano, and mushrooms. Simmer and saute for a minute or two, then add liquids and rice. Simmer 20 minutes on medium heat. Pour ingredients into a glass 13 x 9 pyrex dish and bake in oven, uncovered for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

*Don't skimp or substitute the beef consumme for beef broth. Sometimes it can be hard to find at stores like Walmart, but I can always find it at Smiths, Harmons and sometimes Maceys. It is different from regular beef broth - it is more concentrated and flavorful. You'll find it hidden amongst all the other flavors of Campbells Soup.

Even though this dish is beef flavored, it goes great with chicken.
