Rice Pilaf

I could live off this stuff.  Such a great accent to a flavorful main dish.  Like this one.  Serves 6.

{What you need}
3 T butter
3/4 cup orzo
3/4 cup diced onion
3 cloves garlic, minced (I used 1 1/2 teaspoons store bought minced garlic)
3/4 cup uncooked rice (I used jasmine)
3 cups chicken broth (I used 3 cups water and 3 bouillon cubes)

Over Medium-low heat, melt the butter in a medium sauce pan.  Add the orzo and stir until orzo is browned.  Add the onion and stir until onion is translucent.  Add the garlic and stir for one minute.  Add the rice and chicken broth.  Turn the heat up to high and bring to a boil.  Cover and turn heat down to medium low and simmer until rice is cooked, about 20-25 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes and fluff with a fork. MMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm.
