What type of bacon is best for smoking

You need to know (if you don't already know) that not every type of bacon is good for smoking. Gina Bradea recommends the bacon on the pig's back, which is firmer than the one on the belly, plus it has a thicker rind, which will be to the advantage of the smoker.

Obviously, pork belly bacon can also be an option, but due to the fact that it also has layers of meat among the fat, it requires more elaborate cooking methods, because meat and fat react differently to smoking and cooking.

"I recommend the hard bacon on the back, with the rind. Who does not like it, can remove it later, but it is good to keep it when smoking ", says Gina Bradea.

Cabbage soup with smoked ciolan & # 8211 Mom, mom, how good it is!

It's cabbage time again. Yes, it is a fairly common food, there are several types of cabbage on the blog, but it is very good and healthy! It can be combined with a lot of other vegetables and meats, either in salads or in cooked foods.

I had a few more pieces of a smoked ham from the house, portioned, because it was quite large. I chopped a large cabbage, I sliced ​​3 carrots, I cut 4 onions and a kapia pepper. I first browned a few slices of bacon, I didn't let them make scallops, they just colored on the edges and became slightly transparent. Then I put the onions, carrots and peppers, I kept mixing them until they got shiny, I seasoned them with a lot of paprika and a little salt.

I put the pieces of meat, I poured broth and a cup of water, I put the lid on and let it boil for a few minutes. Then I tried to stuff the cabbage a lot, I turned the heat to low and left the pot covered in peace, until it left its cabbage in the juice and became miscible.

I basically left it on the fire until it softened well, and before I put it in the oven, I remembered some bouquets of cauliflower lost in the fridge, I poured some broth and I matched the taste, I also added parsley. fresh.

The pot was left uncovered in the oven, over high heat (200 or so degrees for me), until the liquid dropped (but not at all) and the cabbage browned nicely on the surface. The result was a sweet and light meal & # 8220smoked & # 8221, all in all, hard flour

To get out a food more dietary and can be consumed by people on a diet, smoked scarita which we want to use, o portion and we keep it approx 30 minutes in a bowl with boiling water (to get the smoke out) or eventually, we put it in a boiling pot, then we throw the water.

In a double-bottomed saucepan (so as not to burn the food), put the oil heated it no more (not hot), we add onion cut scales (looks better in food) along with bell pepper cut into strips, stirring constantly (just while the vegetables will soften), then put smoked scarita portioned, to take from flavor of sauteed ingredients, covering everything with hot water, boiling approx 30 minutes.

New potatoes which I peeled, cut into cubes right (not too small, because being new, they will sfarama), we will add them in saucepan, still boiling 20 minutes.

Near the end, we add tomato paste (this will form a thicker sauce), teaspoon of sugar (which will cut from the acidity of tomato paste), bay leaf (optional), salt and pepper to taste.

Green parsley freshly chopped we add it to the food at the end as taste and decor.
