I discovered the recipe for this French onion rice only a few years ago and it became a fast family favorite.
This rice is so easy to make and loaded with flavor.
If you like the flavors in French onion soup, then you will absolutely love this recipe.
It serves as an incredible side dish that complements any main course you can imagine.
And it’s super easy to make, too.
There’s pretty much nothing to it beyond tossing all the ingredients into the pot and letting the oven do it to work.
I love simple and easy recipes like this that I don’t have to babysit on the stove.
It gives me the freedom to use more time towards preparing the other things I need for dinner.

This rice would be the perfect side dish for so many different entrées.
So the choice is really up to you.
If you are looking for some inspiration, here are some recipes I think would go along with this side dish perfectly.
What if I don’t have a Dutch oven?
If you don’t have a Dutch oven, that’s no problem.
You can add all the ingredients into either an oven safe pot or baking dish
Just be sure to bake it covered with a tight seal.
What rice can I use?
You have the option to choose whatever type of rice you’d like for this recipe, as long as it’s not the instant kind.
Instant rice would dry out fast and burn in the pan. Not good.
Do I have to use beef broth for this rice recipe?
I lean towards using beef broth in this recipe.
But you can use chicken or vegetable if you’d prefer for any specific reason
