Traditional Navarrese dishes with meat to make at home

Traditional Navarrese dishes with meat to make at home

On the occasion of the Day of Navarra, we compile some traditional Navarrese dishes with meat.

Navarre gastronomy is synonymous with tradition and flavor. It has influences from other regions in the north of the peninsula and from France that enrich it even more, if possible. In addition, many of its products have their own designation of origin.

With this marked identity, today we move to the Spanish province as it is the Day of the Foral Community of Navarra. Here we leave you a selection of varied dishes from this land. Take advantage!

Pochas with Chistorra

We chop an onion, a red pepper, a green pepper, a carrot, two tomatoes and two cloves of garlic. We put 1kg of peeled beans in a casserole and add all the vegetables that we have already chopped. We cover with water and put it on the fire until it boils.

We incorporate two whole chistorras pricked so that they do not explode, 75 grams of serrano ham in small cubes, 10 tablespoons of olive oil and salt to taste. Let it cook for 30 or 40 minutes, checking that the beans are tender before removing from the heat and ready to taste!

Mini zucchini stuffed with beef

For this recipe, we will make three simple preparations that will end up in a single dish. On the one hand, we cut 300 to 400 grams of Navarra beef into thin strips and grill with olive oil, salt and pepper. On the other hand, we roast two zucchini cut into four for 30 minutes at 160 degrees. And, thirdly, we prepare a bechamel sauce with half a liter of whole milk, 60 grams of flour, 60 grams of butter, salt and pepper.

Once the béchamel is finished, we check the salt, mix it with the Navarran beef and fill the zucchini.


We cut four legs of lamb at the junction, that is, in half. We surround and tie the raw and clean lamb tripe to the legs, reserve.
