How to cook "Ojakhuri in Georgian"
First, we wash the meat under running water, cut it into thin plates and slightly beat it off. Rub the meat with spices and salt, leave to marinate for half an hour in the refrigerator.
After the time has elapsed, put the beef in a pan with heated vegetable oil, cover the pan with a lid and simmer the meat over low heat.
While the meat is stewing, we peel the potatoes and cut them into wedges.
About half an hour after we put the meat to stew, you can start frying the potatoes.
Fry the potatoes until golden brown, then remove from heat, salt and season.
So, by this time the meat should be almost ready, in total it should be stewed for about an hour, stirring.
5-10 minutes before the beef is ready, put onions cut into half rings in a pan, mix everything and continue to fry. Some recipes marinate onions in vinegar before frying, but I prefer adding fresh ones.
When the onion is soft and transparent, turn off the heat and put the meat on a plate. Put fried potatoes on the sides of the meat and serve the dish to the table. Bon appetit, everyone!
