Preparation steps

  • Then, transfer the meat from the broth, in a pan with oil and bake at a moderate temperature for an hour (without opening the oven! Then turn the buncek a little and pour over the broth in which it was cooked. Grandma recommended that the buncek be cut to the bone before put in the oven.
  • In the end, I increase the baking temperature a bit more and add the potatoes. I turn the bun until it is done. Vegetables can also be added before the end of baking.


In this way, the bun is juicy and hearty!
