This is a recipe adapted from my favorite hot sauce No. 7 Hot Sauce. I love the hot sauce so much I wanted to include one of their recipes. I took some liberties with the original No.7 recipe, but it was all in the name of making them for the back country
Recipe type: Entree
Kitchen Type: Back Country
Serves: 8
  • 1 ½ cups rice (washed)
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 1 ½ cup home-canned crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon of No 7 hot sauce (add more if you prefer)
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  1. Wash rice thoroughly through metal strainer for 3-5 minutes or until the water drains clear.
  2. Combine with all other ingredients in a microwave safe casserole dish. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. When these steps are complete, stir well and continue to microwave for a further 25 minutes at 50% power. Allow to sit without lifting the lid, stirring etc for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Back country preparation is super easy. First allow the rice to cool down to almost room temperature. Once cool, pour 1½ - 2 cups of mixture onto the drying sheet lined dehydrator tray. Use the vegetable setting (125 degrees) for this dish and allow to dry for 6-8 hours, overnight usually will do it. Drying time will depend on many factors, including consistency and thickness of the rice loaded into the trays.
