Jelly can be cooked from a variety of meat or poultry. Most often it is pork or beef. But the most delicious dish is obtained if you combine them.

Pork and beef jelly - general cooking principles
For jelly, you can use any part of the pork, but often it is shank, legs, head. They have a lot of cartilage and gelling substances. They turn into broth during cooking, which contributes to the solidification of the dish. It is important to thoroughly wash the legs and knuckles; if necessary, they are burned over a fire, cleaned with a knife. It is best to soak for several hours, periodically changing the water.
Beef for aspic is also used by any, more often areas of the legs on the bone, for example, areas of the knee. But you can take pure pulp for filling. Since there is no skin on the beef, it is enough to wash the pieces of meat thoroughly and rinse the bones. All products are laid in the pan, filled with water, boiled for 4-6 hours.
What is added in the cooking process:
• onions, carrots, other roots;
• bay leaf, pepper, aromatic spices;
All this is laid not immediately, but in a certain sequence. When cooking it is very important not to let the meat boil actively, periodically remove the foam. Otherwise, the broth will be cloudy. Finished pork and beef are robbed from the bones, minced, combined with crushed garlic and poured with saturated broth. To freeze the dish is sent to the cold, but kept at above zero temperature. Do not freeze jelly.
