Cooking Bear Paw with Pork:

Step 1: Cook the “paw” with pork.

I will make a reservation right away that this dish is prepared very quickly and quite simply. Therefore, it is necessary to begin the process of its preparation immediately before dinner or lunch. So, the first thing we need to peel and wash the potatoes. Then we pour quite a bit of cold water into a shallow bowl and begin to rub the potatoes on a coarse grater. Water is needed so that the potatoes do not begin to blacken. We leave potatoes to the water so that all the unnecessary starch comes out to us. At this time, take up meat. Wash it well under cold running water and cut it into wide, thick pieces. Then we beat them well with a hammer. I’ll clarify right away when buying meat, Choose the widest and most veined bacon pieces. The beaten meat must be salted, sprinkled with special seasonings and grated, pre-squeezed, with garlic. Grated potatoes are transferred to a colander so that the excess liquid is left in the glass, then we squeeze out the remaining starch by hand and transfer to a bowl, add two eggs, add a little salt, pepper and mix thoroughly. Beat the remaining one egg in a shallow bowl with a fork and salt a little. We take a flat plate and put the potatoes on it (if necessary, squeeze out the excess liquid). A piece of meat is lowered into a beaten egg and spread on top, and again lay the potatoes on it. We put on a medium heat to heat the pan, pour a little vegetable oil and carefully roll our "paw" from the plate. Fry on both sides until golden brown. In this way we cook all the "bear legs". At this time, set the oven to heat to a temperature 180 degrees. We cover the baking sheet with parchment paper and lay out the finished “paws”. Sprinkle grated cheese on top (I have Russian) and put in the oven for 15 minutes (maximum -20).

Step 2: Serve the “bear legs” with pork.

After 15 minutes, we take out the baking sheet from the oven and lay out the “paws” on serving plates, decorate with parsley leaves. As a side dish, you can cook a light vegetable salad, and serve red and sweet wine as an aperitif. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - You can add a little onion to the grated potatoes.

- - A baking sheet can be greased with a piece of butter if there is no parchment paper.

- - You can add a little finely chopped greens and garlic to the potato to enhance the aroma.
