Meat preparation

  • When it comes to seasoning, it is best to proceed by either seasoning the meat or the lamb meat more . We don’t forget that spices harmonize with other ingredients.
  • For beef and pork, we choose the usual baking procedure. Fry the prepared meat quickly in the fat on both sides to form a crust that will not leak the juice from the meat during further cooking, and thus it will remain juicy.
  • Then we straighten the meat in a baking dish or baking dish and cover it with baking powder.
  • Depending on its composition, we put the duvet right away or until the meat is almost soft.

Meat quilt

  • Périnka should not only be individual ingredients that are baked together with meat, but should resemble a pudding .
  • Cheese duvet is the fastest and most affordable. Often used cheese is hard grated edam cheese or smoked cheese with a more pronounced taste.
  • But it can also be Niva or some processed cheeses .
  • Add sour cream or white yogurt and eggs to the cheeses. We can just stir the eggs into the cheese mixture or beat the egg whites to make the cheese fluffy .
  • For variety, we can also add finely chopped ham, sterilized peas or other vegetables.
  • The cheese puff is baked quickly, so we put it on top of the soft meat.
