If you are a regular reader, then you have already heard about the adventure I had on the train from Zagreb to Vienna in 2008. I am happy to share that baby V and I traveled last week to Kiev for the same reason. We had a very uneventful travel experience.
I mentioned that on the train I ended up sitting next to a lady from Croatia. She wanted to know what I liked in her country. I told her Cevapi. She shared with me her family recipe and now it is a part of our family too!
So here goes...
You need a mix of pork and beef, or beef and lamb, or lamb and pork.
1 pound ground meat (mixed from above as you desire)
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika
2-3 bulbs garlic minced
1 small onion grated
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp flour
Mix all ingredients well and let the flavors marry while stored cool in fridge for at least 4 hours. This is a great make ahead meal.
After the meat has set for a while, form small patties and fry in pan or cook in oven until golden brown and cooked through.
I serve it on flatbread. I serve it with Tzatziki and Greek Farmers salad. I wil also post those recipes.
I hope you enjoy! If you try it, be sure to come back and leave me a message to let me know what you think!
