Rice–the right way

I made Cuban pork roast, black beans and yellow rice one afternoon for a birthday dinner and got an earful from Grandmother. She was not amused with the consistency rice. Now, she had no idea that the yellow rice was in fact a mix, but she was put out with me for it being sticky. She is in the group of people who believes that there is only one “right” to make rice. God forbid that you purposefully make it sticky or dry.   I almost lost my mind.

Now, here’s the kicker–I went to a weekend culinary experience and found out that you don’t need to put a lid on rice when you cook it! Who knew?! That’s one of those things that our parents and grandparents teach us and it’s not true!
