Pork "Bitki" with greens


2 lb boneless pork
1 shallot onion
¼ lb white bread
1 carrot
1 medium potato
1 egg
¼ lb melted pork fat
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper on taste
1 tbsp parsley and dill green cuts


Peel and wash carrot and potato.
Peel onions, and cut into small cubes, then fry it in 1 tsp melted fat until onions turn transparent. Grate pork together with onions, carrot, and potato.
Then, add 2 pieces of white bread soaked in water, mix, and grate this mix one more time.
Add egg, salt, pepper, and greens, and mix well with a wooden spoon.
Make medium-size "bitki" (about hand-sized), and roll them in flour.
Pre-heat a skillet with melted pork fat, and fry bitki for about 3 minutes per side.
After that, put them in a shallow saucepan, add 1 tbsp water, and simmer for about 10 minutes under a lid, with medium-low heating.
Serve with cabbage, potatoes, or other vegetable garnish.
