Nutritional values

This protein-rich dish covers your daily requirement of protein and 70 percent of your daily requirement of iron. 

To ensure that as much iron as possible from the meat is used by the body, serve a salad with paprika or drink orange juice as a side dish. With the help of vitamin C, which is abundantly available in salad and juice, the iron can be better absorbed.
