Paprika with pork bones

From the cycle & # 8222 with something like this I grew up big! & # 8221 today I present you a dish exactly to my taste, and how could it be otherwise, because it has exactly the aroma of childhood, the bones give it consistency and flavor, it is simple and filling: pork belly. Pork bone paprika, to make the food tastier, knowing that the bones give a special consistency to any stew or soup.

Ingredient Papricas With Pork Bones

  • 1 kilogram of raw (smoked) pork bones, with enough meat on them & # 8211 I used the fork bone & # 8211 optionally, the bones are boiled for 5 minutes in boiling water (to make the food less greasy)
  • 1 kilogram of white potatoes, crushed, cleaned and cut into 8 (for medium potatoes)
  • 3 medium-sized onions, chopped
  • 2 suitable carrots, cut sticks or slices, according to taste
  • 1 glass of tomato broth
  • 1 tablespoon paprika (for a summer version can be used in addition to paprika and 2-3 baked bell peppers, with clean skin)
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt
  • pepper
  • hot water
  • chopped green parsley

Preparing Paprika with Pork Bones:

Cook the onion in hot oil, adding 1 teaspoon of salt from the beginning (it will extract water from the onion, preventing it from burning too easily). As soon as the onion becomes glassy, ​​add the paprika and mix quickly (be careful, the paprika caramelizes very quickly and changes its taste):

Add the pork bones, bay leaves and carrots and quickly add enough hot water to cover them:

If you use winter carrots, they will be added to the food at once with the meat. If you have young carrots, they are added later.

Boil the food over a low heat (the slower it is, the tastier it will be) until the meat is well cooked and it comes off the bone easily, adding hot water if necessary. When the bones are well cooked, take them out on a plate to cool:

Add the potatoes and, eventually, hot water to cover them:

Bone the meat off the bones. My late nun, God forgive her, she didn't do that, but it's natural to evolve, I find it very unpleasant to fight with your bones in a plate with semi-liquid food. So, the bones have done their job, they have tasted the food, now they will be stripped of the meat and & # 8230 the puppy will be very happy immediately!

Add the meat to the food, check the boiling of the potatoes, when they are almost cooked add the crushed garlic clove and the tomato broth.

Boil the food until the potatoes start to crumble on the surface & # 8211 this is the specificity of paprika, it will be bound to the potato starch (that's why white potatoes are chosen). Match the taste of salt and pepper and serve sprinkled with greens, along with fresh bread and pickles:

Potato paprika (in two variants, fasting and sweet)

My grandmother used to say to me, "If you know when and how much salt to put in your food, it's impossible not to get something tasty!" With salt it is not always like in Ispirescu's fairy tale. But it's good to take a few tips. For example, about potatoes.

Peel a squash, grate it and sauté it for a few minutes before cooking. The salt added at the beginning will strengthen them and they will not remain floury. On the contrary, when you want to make a soup or a potato dish, salt is added from the beginning. As for the french fries, they are salted only after they are ready.

It is no coincidence that I have now mentioned how much salt you put in potatoes. The recipe I want to offer you is this: the potato paprika. With lard, on sweet days, and with oil, on fasting days.

At 5-6 suitable large potatoes, put a tablespoon of lard or two tablespoons of oil. And I also know this from my grandmother: vegetable fat must be used in twice the amount of animal fat. Add a teaspoon of paprika (and / or a bell pepper or a donut), a finely chopped onion, finely chopped, and a tablespoon of chopped green parsley.

500-600 g of mutton (or lamb)
3 pieces of medium-sized onions
1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 yellow bell pepper, 1/2 green bell pepper

7-8 pieces of medium-sized potatoes cut into rounds
2 tablespoons lard or 5-6 tablespoons oil

Potato paprika with ram meat & # 8211 Preparation

We start with the meat that we will cut into suitable pieces. Peeled onions are finely chopped. Wash the bell peppers and cut them into small pieces. The tomatoes are grown and scalded in boiling water for a few seconds and then removed in cold water. This way we will be able to peel them easily. After scalding them, peel them and cut them into cubes or slices.

In a larger saucepan (I prefer to use a cast iron saucepan), heat the lard or oil. Finely chopped onion and pepper together with a pinch of salt (as long as it takes between 3 fingers), cook until soft. Add the pieces of meat and continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly so that it does not burn.

Add the chopped tomatoes and continue to mix. Season with salt, ground pepper and paprika (who likes spicy food can add a little hot paprika). Put enough water to cover the meat and cover the pan with a lid. Let it simmer until the meat is cooked (add a little more water during cooking).

Peel the potatoes, wash and slice with a knife or mandolin. When the meat is cooked, add the chopped potatoes and add enough water to boil them together with the meat.

At the end, sprinkle the paprika with finely chopped green parsley and serve with a fresh tomato salad with cucumbers, cabbage salad, pickled salad, or pickles.

Chicken paprika with potatoes

These days I was talking on Fb with Radu Popovici about the paprika that is found in Romania, unfortunately it is not of quality and he said that it is better to try the Hungarian or Indian one. As I have the best quality paprika under my nose, I have never had a problem like this. It seemed to me that the color of my paprika was too beautiful and it also tastes good. I recently received some Spanish peppers and it is a very beautiful color.
So as we were still talking about paprika, I felt like a paprikas, I took out the miracle pot or kukta as we call it and I made a quick paprikas!

4 chicken legs or a whole chicken
1 tablespoon Hungarian paprika
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
6 medium potatoes
salt pepper
2 tablespoons oil

Peel the chicken legs and brown a little oil.
Set aside and cook the finely chopped onion.
Add the chopped garlic and cook for another minute.
Add paprika, tomato paste, salt and pepper.
Add the peeled potatoes, but leave them whole.
Add the thighs and cover with water.
Close the miracle pot and keep for about 45 minutes after it starts to boil.
Remove from the heat and leave for another 15 minutes before lifting the lid.

Potato Papricas with Pork

The paprika is a stew that, as its name suggests, has the existential purpose of honoring the paprika, ie our everyday paprika, sweet or hot. The recipe below, a simple and unadulterated pork paprika with pork, has no claim to follow the line drawn by the Hungarian shepherds and their cauldrons, which have been busy over time with the harmonization of meat with dried peppers. . These shepherds finished the combination of meat and paprika in paprika and goulash. A paprika always has meat, be it beef, sheep, pork, chicken or fish, it is always present. The two popular variants of paprika are given by the presence of potatoes or dumplings. In addition to paprika, I usually rely on such stews on three spices, namely pepper, coriander and allspice (Jamaican pepper), all freshly ground in a mortar. The pepper, in order to be dominant, I don't let it be represented only by the paprika, but I also add dried mushroom cooked a little on the fire and chopped with a knife.
