Vegetable OilTo coat the bottom of the pot
In a pot on medium heat add the pork and cook until the outside is browned. You don't want to cook the pork fully through at this point.
Into the pot add the carrot, onion, and garlic, along with a pinch of salt and mix everything up. Saute everything for another minute.
Add the rice, tomato paste, and seasoning blend to the pot and stir. Cook everything for another minute or two, or until very fragrant.
Pour into the pot 4 cups (1 liter) of water and turn the heat up so you can bring it to a boil. Once boiling give everything a swirl, lower the heat to the lowest setting, and put the lid on. Cook for a half hour and do not open the pot at all.
After a half hour turn the heat off and let rest for 15 minutes, still without opening the lid.
Open the lid, give everything a good mix, and spoon into bowls to serve.
Plov stores well overnight as long as you put it covered into the refrigerator.
