Pork roast with lecsó

by | Aug 28, 2020 | Meat dishes

Lecsó is basically a meatless summer dish usually combined with beaten eggs, rarely with rice. But if you find it too light, you can serve lecsó with a pork roast and toasted egg barley noodles and it will fill your stomach for sure.

For the roast choose a fattier pork cut, lean meat can dry out easily. The thickness of the pork slices should be 1,5-2 cm / 1/2-3/4″. Since the meat doesn’t spend hours in the oven, it’s important to pound it, which helps the meat cook faster and more evenly.

In this case the side dish is toasted egg barley noodles (tarhonya). Please, note that the cooking time of this pasta is about an hour, so it’s recommended starting to cook it at same time as you make the lecsó.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
