Step 1

In a large pot, melt the butter, add the noodles and fry on low until golden brown (almost burnt but not quite!)

Step 2

Add the rice and keep frying until almost transparent. Stay next to the pot and keep stirring so that it doesn't burn.

Step 3

Add the chicken stock. It will bubble and evaporate very quickly. Bring to a rolling boil, cover, turn the heat all the way down and cook for 15-20 minutes. Do not remove the lid!

Step 4

When the cooking time is over, take the pot off of the heat and leave it, still covered, to steam for another 5-10 minutes.

Step 5

Mix the rice to fluff it up, then season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

This rice also freezes well once completely cooled.
