 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Red; (or white) beans
  • 1 Onion; chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic; minced (up to
  • -3)
  • 1 c Barley
  • 1 Carrot sliced
  • 1 Goose breast -or-
  • 2 Goose legs
  • 2 tb Good quality Hungarian sweet
  • -paprika
  • 1 pn Hungarian hot paprika or hot
  • -pepper; (optional)
  • 1/4 ts Ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste


Skin of goose neck; well
2 c Flour
2 tb Goose fat
1 pn Salt
1 ts Sweet paprika
1/4 ts Ground black pepper

Soak beans overnight.

Prepare goose neck by kneading flour and fat with spices. Stuff mixture
into goose skin and sew up both ends with plain white cotton thread.

Mix beans, barley, onion, garlic, carrot and spices. Place in pot with
goose and goose neck in the middle. Cover with water and cook very slowly.

Traditionally the shalet cooks for about 18 hours, but it can be eaten
after three or four hours of cooking.

If you find it impossible to find a goose neck, a similar kugel can be
prepared without it, using more goose fat. The kugel should then be placed
at the bottom of the shalet casserole and covered with an old plate.
