Let's Make Russian Pilaf with Beef


Peel onion, and take the first layer first off and put it in pan with oil. After onion gets brown, take it out and throw away (This step is just for the flavor.).

In the same pot, turn down the heat to medium-low, add in the meat, sprinkle salt, and black pepper. Stir.

Once meat has browned, add onion, carrots, water, cumin, peeled garlic  and salt. Stir and then bring to a boil.

Top with the washed rice but don’t stir it. Cover pan, set on low heat if you haven’t already and let it cook for 35-40 minutes.

Serve with dill pickles!
