“Kofa” is a woman who sells produce in a market, a vendor. By extension, kofa can mean gossip or chatterbox. Then I suppose “kofapecsenye” would be pork chops made by such person. In other words, this is tasty peasant food eaten at the “piac” [open-air market] on the spot. The only advertizing needed is the sweet smell of frying pork meat. Slap the chops inside two peaces of bread and eat it with a fermented cucumber. Though not to be eaten before hot date.

4 slices of boneless pork chops
2 garlic cloves, minced
flour for dipping
Hungarian paprika
ground pepper

• Remove fat and pound the chops very thin with a meat tenderizer.
• Place the chops in a dish and pour milk to submerge them.
• Add a couple of minced garlic cloves to the milk.
• Not to stink up the fridge with garlic, wrap up the dish with plastic wrap airtight.
• Let the chops soak in the milk with garlic overnight.
The following day take the chops out and discard the milk.
• Blot the chops with paper towels.
• Sprinkle both sides of the chops with Hungarian paprika and ground pepper.
• Roll the chops into flour.
• Place oil in a non-stick fry pan and quickly fry the chops until both sides are crispy and golden.
• Place the chops on paper towel to drain excess oil.
• Immediately sprinkle with salt.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. This is to my old on-line friends and visitors: policing the comment section for spam and answering questions has become a chore. Good wishes to you all, happy cooking and keep on feeding your people with good food.
