Yugoslavian Culbastija / Jugoslavisk Culbastija

Juicy, browned steaks of pork are a typical Yugoslavian specialty. Originally this was a favorite dish for excursions ending in a picnics. A shallow hole was dug in the ground making a primitive barbecue fired with wood found around picnic spot. The meat was stuck on wooden sticks and fried over the fire. Initially, the heat should be strong, forming a good brown crust on the meat. The heat was then dampened by covering the flames with ashes and the meat was cooked till done. The meat was repeatedly brushed with oil, but was first seasoned after it was done.

Pork Marengo / Svinekjøtt Marengo

A dinner recipe from a card in “Better Homes
and Gardens Recipe Card Library” published in 1979Pork Marengo / Svinekjøtt Marengo

Marengo dishes – According to a popular myth, the dish was first made after Napoleon defeated the Austrian army at the Battle of Marengo at Marengo south of Turin, Italy, when his chef Dunand foraged in the town for ingredients (because the supply wagons were too distant) and created the dish from what he could gather. According to this legend, Napoleon enjoyed the dish so much he had it served to him after every battle, and when Durand was later better-supplied and substituted mushrooms for crayfish and added wine to the recipe, Napoleon refused to accept it, believing that a change would bring him bad luck. Marengo dishes are loosely based on the dish Dunand created at Marengo.

Roast Pork Tenderloin with Tropical Sauce / Helstekt Svinefilet med Tropisk Saus

A dinner recipe with a touch of the tropics found in “Minikokeboken – Svinekjøtt Spennende og Enkelt”

Roast Pork Tenderloin with Tropical Sauce / Helstekt Svinefilet med Tropisk Saus

Pork tenderloin is one of the easiest, most relaxed cuts of meat to cook for dinner. The tenderloin comes from the loin of the pig, which runs from the hip to the shoulder. The tenderloin itself is sometimes also called a pork “fillet,” and it is one of the tenderest cuts of meat on the animal, since it is not a muscle that receives much if any exercise.

This means that the tenderloin is usually a little more expensive than cuts of meat that need longer cooking, like the loin proper or pork butt (shoulder). It also means that it can be cooked quickly and easily, with no brining or braising needed.

Medieval Monday – Pork with Pine Kernel Sauce / Svinekjøtt med Pinjekjernesaus

A medieval Roman recipe found on CookIt!
Medieval Monday – Pork with Pine Kernel Sauce / Svinekjøtt med Pinjekjernesaus

This recipe illustrates the Roman love of dishes that could be dipped into sauces. A vast array dishes could be served in bowls and platters. Meat would be carved into small pieces, so that each guest only picks what he needs and dips the meat into the accompanying sauces served in little bowls.

The meat would be cooked over a raised brick hearth, on top of which was a charcoal fire. The meat was placed in a pan on a tripod placed over the fire or cooked directly on a grid. Also used were frying pans (pensa), deeper pans (patella and patina), mixing bowls (mortaria) with a spout for pouring.

The recipe given here is not meant to be cooked in a modern kitchen but on an open fire or on a charcoal grill. Roman cooks judged quantities by eye so measurements are not given. Apicius provides the ingredients for the sauce, this then accompanies pan- fried meat.

Faggots With Onion Gravy / Faggots Med Løksaus

A traditional British dinner recipe found on BBCgoodfood
Faggots With Onion Gravy / Faggots Med Løksaus

Just to clearify: Faggots are a traditional dish in the UK, especially South and Mid Wales and the Midlands of England. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork. A faggot is traditionally made from pig’s heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavouring and sometimes bread crumbs.

Faggots originated as a traditional cheap food of ordinary country people in Western England, particularly west Wiltshire and the West Midlands. Their popularity spread from there, especially to South Wales in the mid-nineteenth century, when many agricultural workers left the land to work in the rapidly expanding industry and mines of that area.

Faggots are also known as “ducks” in the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Lancashire, often as “Savoury Ducks”. The first use of the term in print was in the Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser on Saturday June 3  1843, a news report of a gluttonous man who ate twenty of them.
