One Pot Fragrant Mixed Rice (一锅熟)

Almost everyday, I have to crack my head on what should I prepared for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I do believe that all mums will have their own recipe or version of a simple and easy to prepare one dish meal. My mum had taught me to prepare an easy and simple one pot rice for a family. She named it '一锅熟'.

This is my version of one pot rice for my family.
-Cook a pot of rice with chicken stock and some salt to taste. (Sometime I don't use chicken stock so I add butter instead.) When it is almost dry, just add diced vegetarian gluten roast pork, diced ham, diced crab stick and diced button mushroom on the rice. (You can add any ingredients of your choice.) Cover lid and leave it to continue cooking. When it done, open the lid and stir the rice to mix everything up. It ready to serve.

One Pot Meals are happy meals.
Makes the cook happy and those that eat it happy cos can eat in front of TV.

My hubby super loves one pot meals.

Yours is just like claypot style. I can understand what it's like having to crack our heads as to what to put on the dinner table every day. As long as it taste good, who cares how it is done. :)

I love the weekends (it's my off day!!) since I don't have to crack my head what meals to prepare. I have also invented a similar one pot rice cooker meal, dump everything in and just let it cook.

I cook one pot meals very often but I've never tried this combination before. My one pot meals are using with pumpkin/long beans/cabbage. Will try your method one day.

Hi Happy Homebaker and Blessed Homemaker,

Thanks for dropping by. Every family has their own versions of one pot rice. One which we don't have to crack our head just dump whatever ingredients available in the fridge. Sometime, something simple is the best.
