 600 g pork meat (leg, shoulder or breasts)
 2 medium-sized onions
 1 ½ cups rice
 4 tbsp. sunflower oil
 1 tbsp. salt or universal spice
 1 tsp. dried thyme
 black pepper to taste
1

Clean the meat of excess fat and veins.
First you need to bring the meat to semi-readiness. You can boil it in salted water or fry it. I fried it in a pan with a little fat.
If you have chosen this option, heat a frying pan with a little fat and fry the meat for a few minutes until it gets a golden tan on all sides.

Remove the meat in the pan where you will bake the dish.

In the same pan where you fried the meat, add another 1-2 tbsp. of sunflower oil. Add the finely chopped onion.

Then pour the rice over the meat in the baking tray.

I also added a few cubes of homemade pork broth, which I keep in ice cube bags in the freezer. (You can find the recipe for the broth on the website.)

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees without a fan.
If you use a ceramic pan like mine, baking is much slower - about 1 hour, because it takes longer for the dish to boil. If you bake in an ordinary metal pan, it takes about 25-30 minutes until the rice is cooked and absorbs all the liquids.
Enjoy! :)
