    needed something more

    Lea Ann Jarman from Indana

    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!

    Excellent!

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

    Great Pork Chop Stuffing

    Deb Kedanis from GROVE CITY, PA

    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

    Pat Gardetta from OSAGE BEACH, MO

    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

    Carine Nadel from LAGUNA HILLS, CA

    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.

    okay

    Valorie Sanders from KATY, TX

    I was a little disappointed in this recipe--it was way to sweet. Next time I will replace most of the apple juice with water or chicken broth.

    pretty good

    Mary-Claire from Cincinnati

    I made this recipe using homemade apple juice, so I don't know if it made a difference in how the rice cooked. I followed the directions, but I had to cook the rice much longer than the recommended 40 minutes. I thought the recipe was pretty good, but my husband's not wild about brown rice. He thought it was ok. I baked it in the oven covered at 350 for about 30 minutes.

    Definitely Added to my regular recipes

    Amy R from

    This is definitely a good recipe that not only tastes great, but it is quick and easy to prepare. It went great w/ pork chops. Instead of cooking the ingredients in a skillet, I saved myself some time by putting these ingredients in a microwave dish and microwaved it for about 3 min. Then, I stirred it and added it to the rice I made w/ the apple juice. The ingredients may have been a little crispier than if you make it the way it instructs one to make it in the recipe, but it still tasted good and turned out great. I definitely recommend this to anyone that is in a hurry after getting home from work that wants a good side dish in addition to a salad and grilled meat.

    Delicious!

    D CLODFELTER from Leicester, NC

    I made this for my family at Thanksgiving, instead of the tradional kind. They absolutely loved it. The raisins are full of apple juice flavor, and the apples were just the right accompaniment. A great dish for fall. I'll definitely be making this again.

    Laura from wahiawa, HI

    Excellant as a stuffing or side dish. This rice is sure to please everyone is your family. My whole family even my younger children cleaned their plates. The sweetness of the raisins and the crunchy of the almonds make this rice a treat that I plan on serving often.
