Rice Pilaf With Lamb And Vegetables
(Uzbek Palov)
What You Need:
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless shoulder of lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 large carrots, scraped and cut into strips ¼ inch wide and 2 inches long
  • 2 large onions, peeled and cut into strips about ¼ inch wide and 2 inches long (about 3½ cups)
  • 3 cups unconverted, long-grain white rice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups cold water

  • How To Cook:
    1. Heat the oil in a heavy 10- to 12-inch skillet over high heat until a light haze forms above it. Drop in the lamb cubes and fry them for 5 to 8 minutes, turning them constantly with a large spoon until they are lightly and evenly browned on all sides. With a slotted spoon transfer the cubes of lamb to a heavy 4-quart casserole.

    2. To the fat remaining in the pan, add the carrots and 3 cups of the onions. Stirring frequently, cook the vegetables over moderate heat until they are soft but not brown, then stir in the rice.

    3. Reduce the heat to low and, stirring constantly, cook about 2 minutes, or until the rice becomes somewhat opaque and is thoroughly coated with the oil.

    4. With a rubber spatula, transfer the contents of the pan to the casserole of meat and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Toss lightly to combine the ingredients, then pour in 6 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

    5. Reduce the heat to low, cover the casserole and simmer 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed most of its cooking liquid. Taste for seasoning.

    6. Transfer the pilaf to a serving bowl or platter and scatter the remaining ½ cup of raw onions over the top. Serve at once, accompanied if you like by flat onion bread.
