Meat casserole or sautied meat from Sfakia (serves 4)


1 ½ kg zigouri (the front part, not the leg)
1 ½ water glass oil
salt, pepper


Wash the meat well, cut it in small pieces, put it in a big bowl and let it dry for 2-3 hours. Put the oil in a casserole and before it starts to sizzle, add the meat and stir continuously in very high heat until it turns white. Then season with salt and pepper, cover the casserole, lower the fire to half and cook for 1 ½ hour.
Attention: do not add water. You must serve the meat dry, not floating in oil.
