Garlic Brown Rice Pilaf

Garlic Brown Rice Pilaf - adapted from Annie's Eats

2 tbs margarine
2 tbs minced garlic
1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 1/2 cups beef broth, divided
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 375° F.  Spray a 9" x 9" casserole dish with nonstick spray.  In a pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat.  Add the garlic and rice to the pan and cook until both are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.  Stir in 1 cup of beef broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.  Pour the mixture into the casserole dish, cover with foil, and bake for 25 minutes.  Stir in the remaining 1½ cups beef broth and bake, covered, for another 55 minutes.  About 15 minutes before it is finished baking, stir in a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Stir.
