Preparation of Chevapchichs in Serbian:
Step 1: prepare the meat.
For the preparation of chevapchichi it is necessary to use two types of meat. Beef, for example, will give the dish juiciness, and pork - tenderness. Therefore, first we thoroughly rinse the components under running water in order to wash away possible bone fragments and dirt, and put them on a cutting board. We wipe the meat from excess liquid with kitchen paper towels. Now, using a knife, we clean the beef and pork from the film and veins. Cut into medium pieces and transfer to a free bowl.
Step 2: prepare the onion.
Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running water. We lay out the component on a cutting board and finely chop into small squares. Pour the chopped onion into a free plate.
Step 3: prepare the garlic.
With a knife, peel the garlic from the husks and rinse slightly under running water. We spread the cloves on a cutting board and chop finely. Pour the crushed component into a clean plate.
Step 4: prepare the minced meat for the dish.
Pour the chopped onion and garlic into a bowl of meat. Using a meat grinder with a fine grill, grind pieces of beef and pork. Attention: We pass the components twice through the kitchen appliance to make the mincemeat more tender.
Now pour sweet paprika, black pepper, salt and soda into the container. Attention: the last component must be added so that chevapchichi during the frying process begin to increase in volume. To prepare a good base for the dish, it is not enough to mix the components with a tablespoon. They must be mixed with clean hands, like bread dough, for 15 - 20 minutes. After that, we press the minced meat with our hands again so that air comes out of it. Wrap a bowl with meat mass with cling film and put in the refrigerator to infuse for days.
Step 5: prepare Chevapchichi in Serbian.
After the required time for tincture of minced meat, take out a bowl and remove the cling film. Break the egg into the container and mix everything well with a tablespoon. Attention: the egg must also be chilled. This procedure is necessary so that sausages can be easily formed. Now pour the breadcrumbs into a deep bowl. In fact, the last component is used as desired. I did it differently, and all the same chevapchichi turned out delicious.
So, with the help of a tablespoon, we collect the minced meat and put it on the palm of your hand. Roll up the ball with clean hands and dip it into breading.
Then form a sausage thick 1 - 1.5 centimeters and put on a clean flat plate. We repeat the procedure from the beginning and so on until the stuffing ends.
We put on a stove on a medium heat a frying pan and pour a little vegetable oil into it. When the container with the contents warms up well, carefully lay out the sausages. Attention: we don’t put a lot of chevapchichi into the pan, since during the frying process they will begin to swell. We cook the dish, frying it from all sides. Then, using a wooden spatula, transfer the sausages to a special serving dish. If necessary, add a little vegetable oil to the pan and start frying the next portion. When all chevapchichi are ready, we can serve them to the dining table.
Step 6: Serving Chevapchichi in Serbian.
Chevapchichi in Serbian must be served when they are still hot. This dish is ideal to savor with beer or fresh vegetable salads with bread.
