How to cook zucchini with minced meat
One of the main advantages of this combination is that any meat will always be juicy if it is fried or stewed in a pan with zucchini due to the moisture of the latter. This is especially beneficial for connoisseurs of diet poultry dishes, and pork in such a tandem is easier to digest than alone. The very dishes of zucchini and minced meat are mainly divided into:
- Variations of stew, which gather any vegetables that the hostess and / or her guests like, and even mushrooms are added.
- Stuffed boats or glasses that can be filled not only with minced meat (pre-fried until half-cooked), but also with any vegetable mixture.
- Fried zucchini rings in batter under a cheese crust, served with separately prepared minced meat and side dish: rice, buckwheat noodles, pasta.
Regardless of the recipe that you liked, you need to observe 2 rules:
- Mature zucchini seeds must be eliminated, young can not be cleaned.
- If the dish does not stew completely, the minced meat must be cooked before being combined with vegetables.
