SOUZI

Souzi is a popular Georgian family meal, usually made with pork and potatoes as the main ingredients. In summer tomatoes are added.

Souzi

Ingredients (8-10 servings): 1 kilo of pork, 1 kilo of potatoes, 3 large onions, 5 medium to large juicy tomatoes, 4-5 cloves of garlic, 3 sweet red peppers, 3 hot red peppers, 2 bay leaves, 10 grams of fresh parsley, 1 tsp of dried coriander, 5 tbs of oil (if meat is not fatty), and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference).

Preparation: Cube the pork and add to a deep pot. Add 300 ml of water. Cover and bring to the boil on a medium to high temperature, stirring frequently. When the water has nearly disappeared add a further 300 ml of water and bring to the boil again, stirring frequently. Do this for a total of three times. This will make the meat very soft and tender.
