Hello! My name is Nun Sevastyana Uskokovich. I am from Montenegro. Today I want to share with you a recipe of the national Serbian cuisine called Prebranac. We will need:
This dish has this name from the word "sort out". Since in the old days, the beans had to be well sorted out and peeled.
Soak the beans in water overnight. After that, the beans need to be cooked for 45 minutes. Then fry the chopped vegetables in sunflower oil. Fry carrots with salt, red and yellow peppers. Fry the onions separately, adding a little water. Add salt, red, yellow and black peppers, and add garlic at the very end. In a large baking dish, put part of the beans, a layer of carrots, bay leaves, caraway seeds, parsley, yellow, black, and red pepper, then a little fried onions, then again beans, seasoning, carrot and onion. Fill it with water so that the water level coincides with the last layer of beans. It is better not to stir the beans with a spoon, but to shake the dish slightly with your hands. Bake for about 45 minutes at a temperature of 180-220 C.
Prebranac is ready. Enjoy your meal!
