Tas kebap

The technology of preparation of kebaps was taken from the Oriental cuisine, and subsequently it was further developed and modified according to the peculiarities of our national cuisine. Kebaps are cooked in many ways and in practice their variety is great both because of the different types of meat and their different treatments. The most commonly used are lamb, veal and pork. They are prepared by frying or stewing the cubes of meat in fat or sauce, but they can also be grilled. The sauce may also be with different color. It is delicious and aromatic because of the many spices used – savory, mint, black pepper, bay leaf, wine, hot peppers, garlic.

In this endless variety, the Tas kebap certainly enters the list of traditional Bulgarian dishes. It can also be prepared with pork, lamb or veal, along with onions or leeks, flour, tomatoes and spices. It certainly ranks within the favorite dishes of my family members, along with other delicious kebaps such as Wine Pork Kebap.

You must know the recipe for this delicious dish, but if not – check it out! Enjoy!
