1/2 onion, diced
 2 tablespoon lard or vegetable oil
 1/2 cup tomato sauce such as POMI or canned
 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
 1 cup raw rice
 salt to taste
 First melt the lard in a large saucepan.  To this add the onions and saute 
 a bit.  Then add the rice and saute until lightly brown.  Then add the 
 tomato sauce and stir around a bit.  Then add the chicken broth and 
 season to taste.  Bring to a boil, stir well, cover and simmer very gently 
 for about 15 minutes.  Check to make sure all liquid has evaporated, 
 if not, simmer a bit more until the rice is dry .Sometimes I add some 
 frozen peas or green beans in with the broth, this adds color and it tastes 
 really good...
