Uzbek Pilaf (Ozbek Pilavi)

2 cups rice, washed and drained
½ lb beef, in chunks
2-3 tbsp canola oil
3 big carrots, julienne cut
1 onion, chopped
3 cups beef stock
1 tbsp salt to taste
¼ tsp cumin
¼ tsp black pepper

Cook beef chunks in 3-4 cups of water. Once they are about to get soft add 1 tsp of salt and continue cooking over medium heat (for about 20 minutes). Drain and leave aside the beef broth for using later.
In a large saucepan, take canola oil and onions. Saute over medium heat and stir in julienne cut carrots. Saute for more 2-3 minutes. Stir in cooked beef chunks, rice and spices. Cook for about 3-4 minutes.
Add 3 cups of beef stock, you leave aside before. Stir in the remaining salt and once it gets bubbling, close the lid. Cook over low heat till rice is cooked and absorbs all the water (for about 30 minutes).
Once it is cooked, rest for at least 15 minutes without opening the lid. Stir well before serving and serve Uzbek Pilaf warm.
