½ cup oil
1 lb (½ kilo) meat
4 cups rice
1 tsp pepper corns or ½ tsp ground pepper
1 med onion
other spices (optional)*
2 bouillon cubes (optional, but definitely use them if you are trying a meatless version)
salt as desired
*While typically not used here you can add spices like rosemary, marjoram, basil, etc., whatever goes good with meats that you like. It will give a little more flavour to an otherwise bland dish.
Heat oil in a large pot. Add cleaned chunked meat
While this is searing, grind pepper corns and chop onion in chunks or strips add to mixture with salt. Let this cook until meat is tender, apx. 1 hour.
While meat is cooking clean rice. If necessary pick out any small stones or grains that are still in their hull. If necessary winnow. Rinse rice pouring off dirty water.
When meat is cooked add water about 1/2 litres per cup of rice and bring to a boil. Add clean rice to boiling water. Add bouillon cubes and salt to taste.
Bring back to a boil and let simmer stirring occasionally until all the water is gone.
