With over 100 company-owned and franchised restaurants throughout the Eastern and Midwestern United States, RARE Hospitality International Inc. has a fast-growing presence in the steakhouse segment of the dining industry. This relative newcomer to the market--at scarcely 15 years in business, compared to such 1960s-era chains as Ponderosa and Bonanza--RARE's irreverent style of "cowboy cuisine" shook up the segment. By 1996, the company's core chain of LongHorn Steakhouses numbered 81 units. Following its initial public offering in 1992, the company acquired the Bugaboo Creek Steak House chain and its smaller The Capital Grille group of pricey eateries. Founder George W. McKerrow, Jr. continued to serve the company as chairman through the mid-1990s.




Steamed Rice with Vegetables

Longhorn Steakhouse Restaurant Recipe

1 cup long grain rice
2 cups boiling water
dash of salt
1 cup snap peas
2 carrots cut in matchsticks
1 cup finely sliced purple cabbage

Close the drain and fill the steamer to the fill line, preheat on full steam. Place the rice and salt in the solid insert and pour over the just boiled water.

Cook covered on high steam for 25 minutes until the water is absorbed and the rice is fluffy. Combine the vegetables and place in the lightly oiled perforated insert, steam for 10-12 minutes until the vegetables have softened. Toss in a little olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper, serve over the rice.
