Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Wash rice and add to medium heat-proof bowl. Cover with boiling water and let soak for 30 minutes.
  2. In medium pan sauté onions in 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat for 5 minutes or until translucent.
  3. In a separate sauté pan, brown lamb in remaining 3 tablespoons canola oil over medium heat.
  4. Stir in bouillon paste, salt, pepper, and cumin.
  5. Add cilantro and sauté 30 seconds.
  6. Stir rice (including the water it was soaking in) into the meat.
  7. Cover and simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove cover and using a large spoon or spatula pull the bottom rice to the top so the rice cooks evenly. Add 1/2 cup hot water and cover to cook on medium-low for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
Recipe Notes

Notes and Ideas!

  •  Adding water to the meat when sautéing keeps it from drying out when cooking.
  • Before adding rice to the meat, add 1/2 cup water if the liquid has cooked out and the meat looks dry.
