Make 8 pancakes, and prepare the meat as for Porkolt csirke. Dice the cooked meat, or push it through a meat grinder.

Combine the meat juices with VA cups/300 ml sour cream, and bring briefly to the boil. Add enough of this mixture to the ground meat to give it a spreadable consistency. Spread over the pancakes, and roll each one up individually. If you prefer, fold the edges over before rolling up the pancakes. The pancakes can also be shaped into little bags.

Place in an ovenproof dish, and pour over the remaining cooking juices. Put the dish in a preheated medium oven, and heat thoroughly (10—15 minutes). Garnish with the remaining cream, sliced pepper, and parsley before serving.

Hortobagyi palacsinta are very filling, so serve only small portions.
