This was a first for me both in trying it and making it. My neighbor requested it so I thought I would give it a go. I am not sure whether or not it was authentic as I never tried it but we all liked it! It was not too hard to make but it did take a while because I made my own chicken stock. This recipe is enough for like 10 people so plan for a lot of leftovers.
This recipe makes a really amazing lentil soup with a lot of leftover ingredients. I used pork bones here because that is what I had but you can use beef bones, lamb, or even chicken (although I would make the chicken stock first and strain it because of all the little bones). But I did not only use the leftover bones, I also used the leftover fat from the pan, and the leftover gravy.
I made an old school roasted meat dinner. True, there are no potatoes but in the age of quinoa stews and interest in so many ethnic dishes a dinner like this is actually pretty rare.
I cured the pork before I cooked it (so I suppose its technically a ham now) you can see that recipe here but you can just use fresh pork if you like.
