Pilaf is a hearty rice dish that can be cooked in different ways: with meat, without meat, with spices, onions, and garlic. Perfectly cooked pilaf is crumbly, does not stick together, and is very flavorful.

Food blogger Yuliia Mikulich shared a recipe for pork pilaf on her Instagram page. According to the cook, the amount of oil plays an important role: the more oil, the more crumbly the pilaf. But it's important not to add too much of it so that the pilaf doesn't get greasy.
