For the interpretation I did of this recipe (see URL), I used beef
because I had it handy.  I think I'd characterize "bukkenade" as pieces
of meat, in a spiced broth that has been thickened with egg yolks.


What I find interesting about this (along with mawmany) is that with the
addition of coriander and capsicum peppers, it would be very like an
Indian curry.
