Directions:
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and 1 t. salt and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the drained rice. Saute until the edges of the rice begin to turn translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 17 minutes. Transfer the pot to a cold burner or trivet and let the rice stand for 10 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This rice turns out perfect every time. I will sometimes do 1 c. of chicken broth/stock instead of 1 c. of water.
