Meat Cutlets ("Kotleti")

Meat Cutlets, Kotleti
  • 2 lbs beef (~60% of all meat)
  • 1.5 lbs pork (~40% of all meat)
  • 1 medium onion
  • Flour
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  1. Grind beef and pork (in a meat grinder) together twice. (You can use bought ground beef and pork if you don't have a meat grinder. However, the taste is much better if you grind it yourself).
  2. Cut onion very finely and cook in a skillet in vegetable oil, stirring, until golden, then add the onion to the ground meat.
  3. Put a piece of white bread in a bowl and pour some hot boiled water; mash it to make a paste. Add the paste to the ground meat.
  4. Add salt and pepper and mix everything.
  5. Take a piece of ground meat with a tablespoon, form an oval cutlet, roll in some flour, and cook in a large skillet in vegetable oil about 15-20 minutes (until no longer pink inside), turning over a few times while cooking.
