Duvek Rice

This is a Yugoslavian dish that I am trying to recreate.

  • One onion, minced
  • Half of a red or green pepper, minced
  • One cup uncooked rice
  • Two cups beef or chicken stock
  • Two knobs of butter
  • Two tbl. of tomato paste
  • A dash of cayenne pepper
  • One half tsp. of salt

Saute the onions and peppers until the onions become clear. Add the tomato paste, salt and pepper and saute another minute or two.

Add this mixture to the rice and stock, cook on low as you would normally cook rice. When you can no longer see the liquid above the rice turn off the heat and leave covered until it is time to serve.

This goes well with pork loin steaks.
