Buttery Mushroom Rice
Buttery Mushroom Rice

By now I am sure you all know that I am an absolute canned mushroom soup fiend. I make no excuses for it, I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember. You can take away my foodie card, turn your nose up in disdain or tease me mercilessly, it won’t stop me; I serious love that stuff.

I had the entire family over last night for supper and since it was a cooler day, a large and in charge prime rib was on the menu for the night. I’ve had this recipe waiting in my drafts folder for weeks now and I knew that it was the right time to bring that bad boy out and try it!

There’s some serious rice magic happening here. While I have definitely made mushroom soup rice before – what child 0f the 70’s hasn’t – the butter and the beef broth?

Butter magic.

The entire family agreed that this is the best rice they’ve ever tasted. That casserole dish was clean by the end of the dinner, not a grain was left!

Rice can be so hard to take a picture of, but this pic does show the best part of the rice; it’s light, fluffy and completely buttery by the time you pull it out of the oven.

Speaking of the oven, when you first go to take this out, you may see a pool of butter on top of the rice. Don’t fear, that pool of butter is slowly going to sink into the rice as soon as you remove it from the heat. That’s when the magic happens.

Now, just in case the title didn’t give it away, I am warning you that this is extremely buttery. None of us found it too buttery to eat, if anything we might have giggled over how decadent it was, but if you want less butter, you can cut it down to 3/4 of a cup.

My Dad did point out that this was so amazing because it combines his favorite thing, white rice that is just soaked in butter and it’s so true.

This is a new favorite side dish for winter when we are craving comfort food! While it’s certainly not something you should eat every day, if you are looking for a hearty, buttery carbohydrate side dish, this is it!

  1. labernatty says

    Yum!!! I am regularly trying mushroom rice recipes and this one is AWESOME! I added a drained can of mushrooms along with a little salt & pepper to taste. This is one I will repeat.5 stars

  2. Shawn says

    If I only have instant rice on hand do I just adjust tho cooking time?

    • Karlynn Johnston says

      No, it will be soupy, you can’t use instant rice in this.

  3. Nikki Burdo says

    I love this recipe! I have also substituted beef consommé instead of broth and it’s delicious!

  4. Krista says

    Has anyone tried this with chicken stock instead of beef stock?

  5. Amber says

    This looks delicious. I’m thinking of adding cooked chunks of chicken breast to it to make it more of an entree dish. Do you think it’s saucy enough for that? I do have a question about the recipe though. Here’s how the ingredients look on my computer:
    2 c . uncooked white rice not instant
    2 oz cans of Condensed Mushroom Soup 10
    2 oz cans of Beef Broth OR 20 oz beef broth from a container OR prep your own! 10
    1 c . of salted butter sliced

    Are the soup/ broth ingredients supposed to read 2 x 10oz cans? For both, there is a 10 at the end of the line and surely 2 oz of soup is not enough. So that’s the only thing I can figure.


  6. Chris Heckman says

    these blue dishes u’re using are cute also.

  7. Sarah Schultz says

    Made this tonight for the first time and it was a big hit. So easy and delicious!

  8. JanieWinklerDockus says

    A friend gave me a similar recipe and it has one can golden mushroom, one can cream of mushroom and one can French Onion…it’s good too.

  9. Elisa Boyce says

    Will try tonite. Can one add a little onion soup mix also?

    • Elisa Boyce says

  12. Karin Nyberg says

    I have never had this. I’m not a fan of plain white rice, but I do love butter and cream of mushroom soup. Going to have to try it soon. Thanks for the recipe!!
