Granted, I can throw a dessert together in minutes. However, satisfying my sweet tooth is much easier than satisfying three food critic boys!

So how do I put a home-cooked meal on the table during busy weeknights? The trick is short cut products like Success® Rice. Success® Rice is the original boil-in-bag rice that cooks perfectly every time and is ready in 10 minutes. The Brown Rice I used is 100% whole grain and gluten-free. There are 3 other varieties available: White Rice, Thai Jasmine, and Basmati.

    Paula, how many cups of regular rice would this use? We don’t particularly like Success rice.

  3. You don’t list the rice in the ingredients. How many bags do you use? What size?

  4. What is mushroom steak sauce? Is there a brand? Or do you mean mushroom gravy?

    1. I would probably work with mushroom gravy, which is what I meant to pick up. The link to exactly brand is in the comments above, Shawntel.

    1. No and I just realized my instructions are unclear on that. Add the uncooked rice and you’ll kind of toast it slightly then the rice will cook in the french onion soup, mushroom steak sauce and water.
