Ingredients and Preparation:
The journey of crafting Sheftalia begins with a blend of simple yet essential ingredients. Ground pork or a pork-and-lamb mix is expertly combined with finely chopped onions, aromatic parsley, and a symphony of seasonings, including salt, pepper, and sometimes a hint of cinnamon. This flavorful mixture is then lovingly wrapped in a delicate layer of caul fat, a touch that imparts a succulent juiciness and depth to the filling.
These parcels are then carefully placed on a grill over hot coals, where they transform into culinary masterpieces. The grilling process lends a smoky char to the exterior, creating a delicate crunch that conceals the tender delight within. The result is a harmonious marriage of textures – a tantalizing balance between the crisp outside and the luscious inside.
