  • butter,
  • flour
  • sour cream,
  • tomato paste,
  • salt,
  • ground black pepper.

So, going to the roasting of meat, all his pieces to be individually roll in flour. At the bottom of the pan Put the onions, sliced ​​rings, to create a kind of stand meat, because it should not come in contact with the pan.

Himself roasting step should not exceed 5 minutes, otherwise the meat will be juicy. But to focus entirely on the clock is not necessary to carefully watch the color of the meat, and once it is browned, it can be removed. And so all you need to fry the meat. Then again fill all the meat with sour cream mixed with tomato paste.

The amount of sauce depends entirely on your taste preferences. However, even if you are an ardent fan of spices and spicy dishes, here you will have to rein in their preferences, as in this recipe, the main thing - to enjoy the juiciness and flavor characteristics of the meat is.
