Transcarpathian bograch is a legendary dish that is popular not only in this region but also in western Ukraine. By the way, the word "bograch" is translated from Hungarian as "cauldron". The fact is that this dish is best cooked in a cauldron over an open fire. Only then will bograch acquire a truly authentic taste.

However, it is not always possible to go outdoors, light a fire and spend several hours cooking bograch around it. Therefore, this dish is often cooked at home in an ordinary saucepan. A food blogger with the nickname mil_alexx shared a recipe for this dish on Instagram. He also added that it is the most delicious bograch he has ever tasted.
