Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


needed something more

I thought this recipe was pretty good except next time I will use chicken broth in place of the apple juice. The apple juice made the rice too sweet for me. I think the apple juice along with the apple and raisins makes the dish too sweet. I really loved the texture though!

The apples added a zing that was unparalleled in my experience. Great suggestion!

Great Pork Chop Stuffing

Used as pork chop stuffing with 1/2 apple juice and 1/2 water. Everyone liked it. Used the leftover stuffing for lunch but added more raisins, almonds, bran and apple juice.

Apple Brown Rice Stuffing

We really like rice so when I made this but I didn't use it as stuffing; it made a gread side dish. This would go well with most meats but it is especially good with chicken.

brown rice stuffing

I'm always looking for a new recipe outside of the box for brown rice. This one fit the menu. It was great w/ the pork roast I served the first time and it was great to take the leftovers for lunch the next day.
