This is it!

I have found the Rice Pilaf Recipe that reminds me of my country Kazakhstan, it is also known as Uzbek Plov.  Now I want to share it with YOU!  A one pot meal made of flavorful basmati rice and delicious beef.  It is so GOOD! Ground cumin and an incredible aroma from saffron spice give this rice pilaf an amazing kick in flavor.  The beef cooks until perfection, until perfect tender texture.  Falling apart basmati rice simmers in beef, carrot, onion and garlic broth until rice absorbs the mouth watering broth.  It’s a MUST TRY dinner recipe!

I like to serve this plov with Loaded & Baked Eggplant & Broccoli Cucumber SALAD.
