Rakott csülök – Layered pork shank

by | Jan 13, 2023 | Meat dishes

It’s commonly said that eating pork on New Year’s Day brings good luck, so we gave it a chance and welcomed the New Year with layered pork shank (rakott csülök). Pork shank, which consists of bone, lean meat, fat and connective tissues, is often overlooked, but if it’s cooked properly, it can be a delicious and tender cut of pork.

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.
