preparing tarragon for Chakapuli Recipe

200 grams of green onions, 150 grams fresh green coriander, 2 green peppers, 200 ml of white wine, 30 grams of garlic, 1 liter of water, salt (according to taste). Do not add black or red pepper as this will affect the overall taste.

Preparation:

Add the diced lamb or beef to a deep pan. Pour in 200 ml of white wine and cook on a low heat until the wine reduces (usually 15-20 minutes). Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon.

Whilst the meat is cooking, pinch off the tops of the tarragon and strip leaves from their stalks. Chop the tarragon leaves (not too finely). Finely chop the onions, coriander and green peppers.

Crush the garlic.

Add the chopped ingredients, garlic and plums to the pan containing the meat once the wine has reduced. Add 1 liter of water, cover the pan and cook on a low heat for about one hour.
