Savanyú vetrece

by | Jun 16, 2023 | Meat dishes

Savanyú vetrece is an old-school Transylvanian beef stew, however, some recipes refer to it as a soup. So, you can choose whether you cook a ragout or a soup depending on how much water you add to the food. Seasoning is common to both dishes, stew and soup are flavoured with white wine, mustard, lemon juice and zest. If you don’t like beef, you can use pork instead. Savanyú vetrece, if it’s cooked as a ragout, is usually served with polenta or braised rice.

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.
