                                            For 25 servings, use 1 pan.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                          • Pour water (3 quarts per steam table pan) over brown rice. Stir. Cover pans tightly.
                                          • Bake:
                                            Conventional oven: 350 °F for 40 minutes
                                            Convection oven: 325 °F for 40 minutes
                                          • Remove from oven and let stand covered for 5 minutes.
                                          • Sprinkle brown rice with granulated garlic and half of salt-free seasoning, reserving the other half for step 8. Mix well. Fold in cilantro.
                                            Critical Control Point: Hold at 135 °F or higher.
                                          • Heat oil. Sauté onions for 2-3 minutes.
                                            For 25 servings, use a large stock pot.
                                            For 50 servings, use a roasting pan/square head pan (20⅞” x 17³⁄8” x 7”) on top of stove.
