Like many now beloved dishes (pizza, fondue, Caesar salad, okroshka), the hodgepodge appeared by accident. The zealous innkeeper did not want to throw away the dried pieces of meat dishes, in the morning he cooked them in meat broth and added pickles. Having fed the poor with this stew, the innkeeper realized that rich guests would not refuse a delicious dish.

From the name of the dish it is clear that we will "collect" the hodgepodge from various types of meat. There is no single recipe for a hodgepodge, and there has never been, this is the beauty of food. Experienced housewives and cooks can give some advice regarding the cooking process. The broth for the hodgepodge should be cooked over low heat so that it remains transparent, it needs very little salt. If possible, cut the meat ingredients in the same way - into small strips or slices. Add olives, olives or capers at the very end, and turn off the heat immediately. There are only two seasonings in the hodgepodge - bay leaf and black peppercorns. Do not put potatoes in a hodgepodge.

There are a great many options for preparing a prefabricated meat hodgepodge, it all depends on the availability and variety of meat products. Often housewives do not specifically buy products for the hodgepodge, but gradually collect them, freezing small pieces of ham, ham, various sausages left over from the meal.
