Mátrai borzaska means pork chops in potato coating, topped with sour cream, garlic and cheese. Its literal English translation means unkempt meat, which refers to its looks as the coat is made of grated potatoes. It’s a filling dish, which won’t have you sneaking off to the kitchen for a midnight snack. You can serve it with any kind of side dish you like: steamed rice, mashed potatoes or vegetable side dish.
In opposition to the traditional breaded cutlet that is dipped into flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs, borzaska is coated in the mixture of grated potatoes, egg and flour. The chops are first deep-fried, then roasted with garlic sour cream and grated cheese.
