Ingredients for Chovlent

Step by step instruction of cooking Chovlent

Шаг 1

The beans, rinse, cover with water and leave for 5-6 hours (I left overnight) and then boil in the same water until soft.

Шаг 2

Barley pour boiling water and cook until soft (took me about 15 minutes).

Шаг 3

Onion cut into cubes, carrots - straws.
Vegetables fry with the addition of paprika and tomato paste (I was so fascinated by the process that I forgot to take a picture)

Шаг 4

Meat cut into small pieces and fry in lard or vegetable oil until tender, a good pepper and salt.
As I wrote, I took for this recipe beef. Suit and pork, it will be interesting with the lamb, but tastier chovlent is obtained from smoked ham or smoked bacon, only a lot of smoked foods should be reduced in 1,5-2 times, i.e., at a portion approximately 100-130g
