    Here is the recipe for the Ploff/Plov I made mention of recently. I have posted some photos to help clarify. The first photo has absolutely nothing to do with Ploff other than the fact that two of the three children are my babies and they are Russian! I just think it’s a cute photo. But on to the recipe.

    2 cups diced onion (I use Vidalia)
    2 cups shredded carrots
    2 cups meat (pork or beef)
    2 cups boiling water
    1 cup rice
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 tsp Vegeta (don’t worry if you don’t know what this is. I have a photo!!)
    2 Bay leaves
    Garlic, Salt, Pepper, Parsley, Basil (all to taste) I would say, according to the batch I just made, I used about 1/4 tsp salt 1/8 tsp pepper and two cloves of garlic. The dried parsely and basil I put in a few dashes of both.

    Ladies and gents and fellow confused Americans. Here is VEGETA! You can find her in any of the Europa Markets(for those of you in Sac) or in any of your local Russian/Slavik/European stores. The ‘g’ in Vegeta is pronounced like the ‘g’ in “go”.

    Now, here is the easy part. Using one pot:
    Sautee’ the onion and carrot in the oil. Once the onion is clear, you can put your diced meat in and cook until done. During this time, add your spices. Spices added, pour in the boiling water and the cup of rice. Let everything boil for about five minutes(stir it around a couple of times). Then turn to low and let it cook until the rice is done. Folks, serve it and eat it with gusto! Or sour cream. I like a dollop of sour cream and a slice of French bread.
