Ćevapčići

Cevapcici

COUNTRY:

You’ll find these grilled minced meat ‘sausages’ across the Balkans, but Ćevapčići is considered a national dish in Serbia. Packed full of flavour with paprika, garlic and cayenne pepper, and with beef, pork AND lamb, they’re a meat lover’s dream.

If the great British weather is being kind, fire up the barbecue and give them a good old grilling outside.

Time: 30 mins   /   Serves: 8   /   DIFFICULTY: Easy

Ingredients
250g minced beef
250g minced pork
250g minced lamb
3 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Salt & pepper
Yoghurt sauce
300g natural yoghurt
1/2 cucumber, diced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
A pinch of cayenne pepper
Steps
  • 1. PREP

    Mix the meat with the paprika, cayenne pepper & crushed garlic. Season well, then leave in the fridge for up to 24 hours to allow the flavours to develop.

  • 2. YOGHURT SAUCE

    Again, super simple, just mix all of the ingredients together to form a nice cool yoghurt sauce.

  • 3. GRILL

    Take handfuls of the meat mixture and form into small, fat, cigar shapes.

    Grill or barbecue until nicely browned on the outside & cooked throughout.
