In a high sided skillet (that has a cover), saute the rice in oil over medium high heat until the rice is solid white, then add onion and saute until onion is translucent, add garlic and saute just a little. Rice should be lightly tanned. Pour the broth slowly into the skillet. Add cilantro seasoning minicube, salt, cumin, and pepper, stir and bring to a boil then lower it to a simmer on low heat. Make sure minicube has dissolved.
Cover & cook on low until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Do not uncover and DO NOT STIR while rice is cooking. About 20-25 minutes.
