Today we will talk about what vegetarians do not eat. Guessed? This is meat! Of the various ways of cooking meat, we opted for roasting pork in foil in the oven, because the absence of additional fats, for example, vegetable oil, is very good for us. Pork has never been a dietary meat, but if it is cooked in natural juice, then it certainly will not be as harmful as when the meat is fried in a pan in fats.
The ancestors of the Russians, even before the adoption of Christianity, were engaged in cattle breeding, so the abundance of meat dishes on their table could be envied from antiquity. At different periods in the development of Russian cuisine, the composition of meat food was different, but definitely, during fasting, any meat was forbidden to eat. However, true meat-eaters managed to cook it, despite all sorts of taboos. At present in Russia, meat reigns on the table at the head of all other dishes.
Truly Russian meat dishes are always distinguished by their special taste, and there are at least six cooking methods. Of these, especially stand out: frying, stewing and boiling. For example, pork dishes are very often prepared according to peculiar technologies, and for a rather long time. Apparently, the reason is hidden in the fact that meat is usually served in pieces for a holiday, and it’s not a sin to do magic in the kitchen for a dinner party. It is this festive meat that we will cook today.
Pork, if it is cooked by baking in the oven, as in our case, and even in foil, without the use of fats: vegetable or butter and sauces: mayonnaise, ketchup, tartare, bechamel will have an unusually tasty, tender and healthy meat. The nutritional properties of just such meat are evident. Vitamins of group B, which are contained in a pork steak in a more significant volume than in all other types of meat products, were not destroyed in the foil, and everything was fully preserved. A small 200-gram piece of pork meat baked in the oven in its own juice can be eaten by healthy people several times a week without fear. Our recipe has come to an end. Pork in foil is still very hot and will stay hot for a long time. So invite your friends over and be sure to tell us where you learned how to cook such juicy and healthy meat.
