Why a duck? Well, actually, so you can try and cook the chicken and goose, and whoever else we walk around the yard ...
On the Internet "walking" a recipe in which the offer of a goose with salt and hang out for a few months in an airtight bag in the cold. Like, so he prosolitsya and provyalitsya. May under certain circumstances it would happen. But it is likely that the goose is just rotten. And it will be very disappointing. Therefore, we offer a recipe easier and faster.
In order to once again hit the family members and guests with culinary delights, we need ingredients:
2-3 duck breasts
Large sea salt
Black pepper (grind before cooking)
Thyme, rosemary, basil
Optional - half a glass of spirits (brandy, for example)
Again, clean, dry gauze
Fresh fillets must be prepared: clear from the skin, fat, films and the like. Washed, dried napkins. In a suitable dish on the bottom pour a layer of salt and coarse-ground pepper. Here it is possible to pour the brandy, if not pity. And if you do not plan to feed the flesh of children. But even without the brandy, too, turned out good, no doubt.
So, lay out the tray breasts, sprinkle the top with salt-pepper-grass. Cover tightly with a lid or cling film, and send in the refrigerator for 12 hours. During this time, the meat must prosolitsya impregnated with aromas of herbs, spices and brandy. Convenient preform in the evening, leaving for the night. In the morning we obtain breasts from the refrigerator, washed by water and dried. Wrap in cheesecloth (several layers) or a thin cloth, and send in the refrigerator until the evening (that is, even 12 hours at least). In the evening, you can collect all of the table and with taste. And you can make it a secret from everyone: it turns so delicious that it would be a pity to share with someone?
In principle, the duck is not necessary to eat all at once. After lying a couple of days, it will become drier, but no less delicious.
For the same technology can be cooked chicken, and turkey breast. Only time will be different "maturing", the turkey may take a couple of days. Drink marinade can take a little vinegar or soy sauce. Food Lovers "smoky" can add a bit of "liquid smoke." Again, as in any recipe to cook the meat jerky recipe needs one - the base, and then you can vary the spices and additives to your taste.
Well, finally not quite jerky, but still very tasty
Bacon (for the first time and can be a small piece)
Spices: coriander, cumin, black pepper, bay leaves, dried dill, garlic
Onion skin (instead of chemical dyes, give a pleasant shade of meat)
Put the bacon in a pan and pour the marinade. For the marinade into the water pour salt and selected spices. The degree of salinity is determined on your taste. Marinades should be 2-3 cm above the meat. There also send onion peel (how many will find optimal - 6-8 bulbs). Put the pan on the stove and bring to a boil. Cook for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of the piece. Turn off the heat and send the pot in a cool place to cool off. You can on the balcony, but you can leave the kitchen. When the meat has cooled completely, it should be a little more spice. We grind the garlic, black pepper, coriander, and rub the mixture of bacon. In fact, there can be almost immediately. But where it would be better if allowed to "rest" in the refrigerator for a day or two, pre-wrapped in paper, gauze or foil (which would be handy).
Some are afraid to eat raw meat, even provyalennoe. In this there is a certain reason, for example, low-quality pork can "live" worms. Good salting this problem usually resolves. If you still afraid, then take the beef or poultry, there is far less risk. Although in pork, purchased in the store, no residents should not be.

Then, separately fry in butter eggplant and peppers. Celery can be added to the eggplant later. The fact is that if you mix all the vegetables once, someone will be raw, and someone certainly will burn or overcook. So when all the ingredients for the filling brought to the desired condition, they can be mixed. Now add a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste and stir. Pasta is often sold salted, so before adding the salt, try stuffing. If necessary, dosolit. As the spices will sound good black pepper, garlic, basil, thyme.

Ready serves traditional stuffed cabbage - with sour cream. Bon Appetit!
