Beef hunter-style with caramelized vegetables and fried potato dumplings

- Comments Off on Beef hunter-style with caramelized vegetables and fried potato dumplings -

Beef hunter style used to be one of my childhood’s favorite dishes and it did stay so, because my dad used to make it always very tasty. I wanted to show you with the platting that from this dish you can make out a real festive dish. My hunter style beef is different from others in that I serve also caramelized vegetables (the same as there are in the sauce) with it.

Hungarian style seasoned cottage cheese cream

- Comments Off on Hungarian style seasoned cottage cheese cream -

We hardly eat any dairy products and we do not drink any milk, I only use milk for to make a dough with yeast. However, time to time, we like to eat cottage cheese and sour cream coming from the countryside, it is much tastier and fatter than the ones you can buy in a store. If my mom surprises us with sour cream and cottage cheese from a village near Gyöngyös, my home-town, I like to make Hungarian style cottage cheese pasta with bacon and sour cream, dill-cottage cheese sweet pastry, cottage cheese strudel, or sweet cottage cheese cream for the pancake or salty one that I am going to share with you now. We eat the salty cottage cheese cream with toast bread, this time I served it with seasoned avocado (salt, pepper and lime juice). It is a nice combination of three for breakfast, lunch or for dinner and last but not least it is also healthy. Avocado is a great source of vitamin A, B, C, E and D. The oils in their have a beneficial effect on our body, e.g. it helps to keep our cholesterol balanced and also keeps our skin younger. Cottage cheese has a good level of calcium in there. And for those with liver sicknesses, it helps with their amino acids level. I had learnt to make a „kőrözött” (the Hungarian name for the above dish) from my father as a child. So making it, brings back nice memories.

Winter lentil soup

- Comments Off on Winter lentil soup -

This soup is an excellent comfort food after the Christmas period, from more of its advantages just to mention its enter cleaning effects. If we want to focus on cleaning our body, then just leave the meat out. There are several types of lentils. there is e.g. beluga lentils, that is small and dark colored, puy lentil, that is also smaller you can buy it in different colors. This time, since the holidays, I made my soup from gourmet mountain lentils, this also a smaller type. This soup is an excellent choice also for New Year’s Eve. I am sure I will make it again then since I could not go to bed on the 1st without eating lentils.

Goose liver in goose fat

- Comments Off on Goose liver in goose fat -

Like my father used to make goose liver for Christmas, I keep his tradition and I make this festive dish too. In my childhood we would only eat goose liver for Christmas, though I like to choose this dish often in a restaurant if they have it on their menu. We should buy at least the same amount of fat so that we can prepare at least two different dishes since we bought this expensive ingredient. I recommend you proceed the way I did. We can easy prepare this dish a day before Christmas Eve, so we have hardly anything to do before it comes to serving. Category: meat dish, Hungarian, gluten free, egg free

This is a type of dish that we can have our butcher help with the bigger part. The thin flank needs to have a sack opened for the filling. This is what our butcher will do for us. The rest of the steps are real simple. We can fill the meat with anything now I am going to show you my variation. The salad is easy and it goes well with this dish and it makes it also colorful. Therefore we can make it festive dish on the Christmas table.
