Preparation method:

Cook the shoulder in water for 1½ hours. Drain and cut into ½ cm slices. Allow three slices per portion.

For the fried dough parcels: put the flour on a pastry board and make a well in the centre of the mound. Add the other ingredients and knead to form a dough. Set aside to rest for ½ hour. Roll out the dough until it is approx. 2mm thick. Cut into 4cm squares.
