Zagreb-style faširanci with kale – minced meat steaks

Ever tried Zagreb-style faširanci? No? Well, what are you waiting for?

Younger members of your family will love this dish, and, mark our words, those a bit older will also clean their plates so thoroughly that they will barely need washing.

 

Ingredients for 4-6 people:

For the minced meat steaks:

2 large rolls

100 ml of milk

750g minced meat

½ of onion

1 egg

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

100g breadcrumbs

 

For the kale:

1 head of fresh young kale

1 purple onion

150g carrots

3 cloves garlic

150 g smoked bacon

200 g white beans from a can

 

Also:

300 ml oil for frying

Salt and ground black pepper

Preparation:

Cut kale leaves into larger pieces. Chop garlic. Cut buns into cubes, place in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt, cover with milk and leave to soften. Place the minced meat into a separate bowl, add ground black pepper, a little salt, crushed garlic, chopped onions and chopped parsley, one egg and mix everything together well. First, shape the mixture into dumplings with your hands moist. Next, shape them into faširanci and roll in breadcrumbs. Pour a little oil into a tall pot, add carrots sliced into rings and chopped red onions. Add a little salt and briefly simmer until the ingredients soften a little. Then add canned white beans, sliced cloves of garlics, kale and dried bacon. Cover everything with water, close the pot and cook over a low flame for about half an hour. In the meantime, heat frying oil in a separate pan and fry the faširanci until golden-yellow, occasionally turning. Faširanci with kale serve hot.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
