Throw it into the pot, stir it and it's ready. That would be the shortened recipe for a warming pot dish. It's a simple, hearty, and flavorful meal that will play both primary and secondary roles at the dinner table. It will especially be loved by meat lovers, as it's filled to the brim with a mixture of aromatic meats. You have to try this recipe.

This satiating and aromatic dish is perfect for a warming lunch. It's loaded with vegetables and packed with meat, and thanks to the potatoes and beans, it will satisfy your hunger for a long time. This is a two-in-one dish - both a starter and a main course. It differs slightly from the traditional stew (which should be prepared on an open fire), but this version - homemade, from a stove - lacks nothing.

Home pot. Warming and satisfying

Where to start? From compiling a list of ingredients. The base of the pot is meat, which is worth paying some attention to. If you don't know which sausage to choose, go for a fragrant juniper or hunt one with a rich flavor. You can also add some smoked bacon, which will add an aroma typical of campfire dishes. Don't rely on lean meat, for example, tenderloin. Choose pork shoulder or ham, which stewed in a thick sauce will become soft and delicate.

The pot should also contain vegetables. Let the base be carrots, parsley, and celery, which always work in these types of dishes. It will not do without onions fried with garlic and of course - red bell peppers. Potatoes will thicken the consistency of the dish a bit and make the prepared pot satisfying for a long time. Red beans have a similar role.
