Cevapcici

Postby snagman » Thu Sep 29, 2011 4:27 am

From the former Yugoslavia, these delicious snacks are easy to make, problem is it is hard to make enough of them. There are many variations, some a closely guarded family secret. This recipe is the closest I have managed to make.

CHEVAPCICI
250g Lamb mince
500g Chuck steak
250g Pork
4 Garlic cloves crushed
5g Salt
5g Baking Soda
10g Cracked black pepper
1.5g Hot Paprika
1 Beaten egg white

Grind meats through a fine plate, mix very well and overnight in the fridge. I was too lazy to set up my 7kg capacity stuffer for such a small quantity, so I used a disposable plastic piping bag to extrude the mix. If a stuffer is used it would be a small tube for these.

It was raining heavily this day, so cooked on the stove top. Note desirable grilling marks. These are best cooked over charcoal.

As a pre dinner finger food, very hard to beat for very little work !

Thanks for looking !

I love chevops. We make them all the time. I've only made them myself once but there is a local euro deli that always has some made up so most of the time I just get them there.

You don't have a recipe for lepinja bread to go along with these do you?

Dang I thought I posted on how good these look. Thanks for sharing the recipe Snag.
Can anyone tell me the reason for the baking soda, or what it does for the sausage.

Looks great! :D Isn't the tradition to serve them with chopped raw onion? Or maybe I'm confusing it with another dish?

I have a simple taste - I'm always satisfied with the best.

The soda is said to help give a crispy outer. I love these little chaps, they're so easy to make and always go down well at a barbie.

I thought a yoghurt dip (sort of raita style) was the traditional accompaniment.

Even the deep frozen ones from Lidl for about £4 a kilo are good. That's a good price for something that contains 97% beef, BTW.

We have a similar gizmo at work that we use to make grillsticks/koftas, it does a great job.
