Cook the rice
In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the lemon and ½ the onion, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the rice, demi-glace, 2 ½ cups water, ¼ of the spices and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Add 2 tbsp butter. Fluff and keep warm.
