Perkelt is a dish seasoned with pepper and is made from calf or young beef. It is cooked, depending on the number of people – in kotlanka pot, cauldron, saucepan or pot. In all cases it is extremely pleasing, especially when eaten with turos csusza – noodles with cheese, sprinkled with fried diced bacon. The enchanting taste brought it the primacy of the most desirable cooked dish from the “family” of goulashes and stews.
