The ”TASS” kebab

IMG_6624

To start the year with a classic dish-the “TASS” kebab. In principle it is prepared from veal (as I do in this case) but can be cooked with pork. Doesn’t take long for its preparation, making it very practical.

Products:

500gr./pork/veal meat

300 ml tomato juice

1 onion salt

1 tbsp.paprika

black paper(grains)

savory-thyme

bay leaf

Preparation:

The meat is cut into small pieces and put in a saucepan. Stew over in its own juice until grey/white calour and add 3-4 tbsp oil. Pour 2-3 glasses of water and stew until soft/can take 2-3 hours depending on the meat.

Further, I can make it in two ways, depending on the time you have. Fastest/lazy/option: later added other products, such as chopped finely onion and poured the red wine/2tbsp./ If you need to add more water and make it thicker can add 2tbsp of flour diluted in cold water. The slow option: in a pan 2-3 tbsp oil FRY 3-4 tbsp flour stirring constantly add the paprika. Dilute with meat broth and tomato juice, and leave it to slowly cook with occasional stirring.

Served with a side of boiled rice.

Breaded baked COD/pangasius/

I guess a lot of you love fish, but abstain because of unhealthy frying. Recently prepared in a new way this delicacy, in which no frying is involved, but baking in the oven. So you will be pleased by the fact that your House won’t get unpleasant smell of fried fish. Other great advantage is that you won’t stay permanently to the pan. Try and mark my words I use Cod or cheap version called pangasius or other fish.

Marinate with salt, soy sauce and lemon juice. It’s nice to soak in the marinade for at least an hour. Then dip the fillets in beaten egg,  then mixture to stick well: flour and breadcrumbs in a ratio of 50/50, spices-ground pepper, dried lovage and thyme. Arrange the pieces next to each other in a try with Baker’s paper on the bottom, which is oiled in advance. Sprinkle the fish with oil and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 c, in the middle .

To consume with seasonally fresh, baked or cooked vegetables, pickles.
