Kapama, or shaken kebab, was very cool. It was a simple dish consisting mostly of onions, Hungarian paprika, and pork. You have to shake the pot with all the contents to get the onions to release their juices, creating a marinade. This was a challenge I would not allow DH to help me with.
This is something I usually keep to myself. I have rheumatoid arthritis. It is an auto-immune disease that makes me tired sometimes and I usually get fatigued pretty easily, but most of all it causes my joints to swell and this can really hurt. Most of the time I am lucky and can deal with the pain. Other times, such as when it affects my neck and throat, I am in an emergency room getting steroid injections and major pain meds. Since about May, it has settled permanently in my left wrist. Some days I can’t use my left hand at all.
This shaken kebab was a victory! I modified a cabbage patch dance move and let my forearms carry the weight of the pot to shake it. I was skeptical this magical marinade would turn out for a strong person, let alone someone like me. But after some shaking it was wonderfully juicy!
