Holodec (also written as Holodets) is a jelly mass made of cooled broth with chunks of meat. Holodec is usually made from variety meat. It can be pork, beef or lamb legs, ears, tails, etc. By-products contain a lot of gelling agents.
Ingredients: 2 pork legs, chicken ham, bay leaf, black pepper, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, salt, onion and garlic.
Preparation: rinse the pork legs well, pour 4 liters of water and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours. At the end of cooking, add peeled, but not chopped onion, bay leaf, pepper and cook for 30 minutes. Remove by-products from broth. Add the lemon juice in broth. Separate the meat from the bones, put in the strained broth and cook for 20-30 minutes. Then add the chopped garlic and salt to taste. When it's ready pour the broth on plates, arrange the meat in it. Put in the freezing cold for the whole night.
Holodec is cut into portions and served with mustard or horseradish.
