This quick and easy Kholodets recipe (meat aspic) is a classic Ukrainan dish. A jellied meat dish made with chicken, carrots, onions and seasonings.
Bring to boil over high heat, turn it down to a simmer and cook until the meat is almost fork tender (For chicken – about 1 hour; beef – 2 hours; pork 2 hours.)
Add the onion, carrot, peppercorns, bay leaf and salt to taste (the broth has to be just a tad saltier than usual) and cook for another 40 minutes – 1 hour, until the meat is fork tender. Add a 1/2 a bunch of parsley tied with twine, the last 10 minutes before the end of cooking.
Remove the meat. Add pressed garlic and parsley, and cook for another 2 minutes.
Take away ½ cup broth from the rest of the broth. Add gelatin to ½ cup of broth and let sit for 2-4 minutes, allowing the gelatin to bloom.
Serve with horseradish sauce or wasabi.
