Can you cook the rice in the oven inside the casserole?

Yes that is an option but I personally like having the rice cooked first in a normal way. However it is an option and the additional directions are below:

  1. In order to cook the rice in the casserole you’ll need to add water or a flavorful stock. I like beef stock for this recipe.
  2. Mix the cream of mushroom with the sour cream then slowly mix in 1.5 cup of beef stock or water plus 1 tsp salt. The mix will be very soupy.
  3. Now add the other ingredients with the dry rice. You do not have to rinse the rice first. Mix everything together in the baking dish and then cover. 
  4. Place in the oven for 45 minutes then remove the cover and add cheese. Bake uncovered for a remaining 25 minutes or until cheese has melted. Allow to cool before serving.
