if you use beef broth to make the rice...

it makes your house smell like the best popcorn ever.

i used half/half water/broth. and it smelled so good, i can't wait to do it again.

i like this kitchen basics brand you see in the picture. they have a few flavors (one vegetarian) that all taste more like broth than salt. ideal had this brand for 2/$5 earlier this month. i bought one or two since aseptically-packaged broth lasts a long time, almost as long as canned broth. of course you should check the expiration date on items you buy to make sure.

in my experience, when buying storebought broth, aseptic packaging is the way to go. you can keep any leftover broth in the fridge for a week without transferring to another container, which is something you can't do with canned broth. and if you find yourself with a half-full container several days after first use-- well, you'll probably think of something to do with it right away; but if not, pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze away.
