Armenian Rice Pilaf Bart Shishmanian's Family Recipe

Submitted by: ZFISHPOND

Introduction

My mother was married to a wonderful man, Bart Shishmanian. He was a great father figure, and a wonderful Grandfather. He taught me how to fix this wonderful Rice Pilaf the first year they were married. My kids absolutely love it. I haven't tried to make it substituting a lesser fat product. If you do, please let me know. My mother was married to a wonderful man, Bart Shishmanian. He was a great father figure, and a wonderful Grandfather.

  • I'm trying to cut fat, so I only used a tablespoon of butter to brown the vermicelli. I think you can just experiment with cutting the amount of butter to see how low you can go before it doesn't taste right to you...The butter adds flavor, so I wouldn't eliminate it completely. - 8/15/09

    Hey, thanks so much for that great advise. I will try it to see where the perfect cut off is as not to take away from the flavor. I really appreciate it.
