I should have listened to the experienced cook in my ahead when I questioned the little amount of fluid and cooking temp..The rice wasnt cooked done and the sauce , well, wasnt.

My common sense told me his recipe should be cooked at a lower temp (like 250-300) and be covered with foil for the recommented 1-2 hr cooking time...
