Monastery pork roast

A very interesting recipe for me! I saw it presented by Ivan Zvezdev as an old Bulgarian recipe from the Bachkovo Monastery. And since I can definitely call myself now a fan of the old and forgotten Bulgarian dishes, I decided to introduce it to you …

Very easy, and suitable for beginner cooks! And super delicious!

Enjoy! 🙂

НАЧИН НА ПРИГОТВЯНЕ:

1

Cut the meat into pieces similar to steaks. Don't worry, they don't have to be with exactly the same thickness.
Place the meat in salted water (about 1 liter) and cook it for about 20 minutes until almost ready.

Add the sugar and salt to taste. If you decide to add the grated or finely chopped ginger, the hot pepper, the cinnamon and the clove bud, now is the time. I decided these spices would add too string flavor to the dish and I missed them. But the decision is yours! 🙂

Take the meat out of the water and arrange it at the bottom of a baking pan about 20/30 cm in size. Do not throw away the broth, it is extremely valuable and can be used to prepare other dishes. I made a delicious vegetable soup with potatoes, carrots, peppers and peas.
