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!

    Tried this out so I can use up some stuff in the pantry. Delicious! Tweaked it so I could use brown rice and threw in some sautéed veggies. Increased cook time by about 20 minutes and increased liquids with an extra cup of broth. Came out like risotto!5 stars

  2. Tonya says

    This was delicious! Perfect with our pan fried pork chops and mixed veggies for a sweet comfort meal. Thank you!5 stars

  3. Amber says

    Incredibly easy and so delicious. Wonderful New Year’s day side! Thank you5 stars

  4. Ethan C says

    I made this today, and substituted the beef broth with vegetable broth. I only used a half cup of butter slices, and stirred the rice when i removed the lid to incorporate the melted butter. It turned out really good, and didn’t burn or stick to the casserole dish.5 stars

  5. RiceIsLife says

    Cooked this according to the recipe turned out horrible. Rice stuck and burned to the bottom of the dish. Smelled like I had cooked popcorn in the oven. Tasted even worse my dog wouldn’t even eat it. That being said was really looking forward to trying this. Unfortunate waste of good Jasmine rice.

  6. Donna says

    I have never baked rice before, however I thought this delicious. Timing was perfect. Next time I would add a little salt. I also added pepper, fresh chives, parsley and after I took off foil I added chopped mushrooms. Will def make it again.5 stars

  7. Betsamaris De Mezzina says

    Since Francis cut the Buttery Mushroom Rice recipe into 1 cup of rice I wonder How long did it take to cook …. 30 min covered an 20 uncovered?5 stars

  8. Becca says

    I had tomake a second batch without butter to add to the first batch because it was swimming in butter. It was good after I combined the two.

  9. Franci B says

    Sooooooooo GOOD! I was looking for some recipes for rice side dishes that were easy and not a lot of fuss to make because we were in about week 7 of the Covid quarantine and I just couldn’t bear cooking another repeat dinner. You guys… this rice dish is fabulous! I’ve made it a few times since as well. Even my pre-schooler can’t get enough of it:) It’s already become one of the most requested side dishes from my family. Thank you SO much for this amazing recipe. –I don’t make the whole thing. I cut the recipe in half because our son is little and the 2 cups of rice would be too much for us. Though, the next time I have an opportunity to make a dish for a pot luck, guess what I’m bringing?! I mean the butter makes this so incredibly tasty!5 stars

  10. Andy Stites says

    This was amazing! We over bought on rice and I was looking for a good recipe to make with cream of mushroom soup. I did sauté some onions and mushrooms and added that. I also browned the rice a bit before cooking. That’s gave it a slightly nutty flavour. The butter really was the star of the recipe lol…5 stars
