Pljeskavica en Serbisk Hamburger med Shopska Salat
I had more than 1 kg of meat, therefore 7 steaks
Procedure without liability: If whole coriander, cumin and pepper are used, these should be finely grounded in a mortar before mixing with paprika and salt.
Beef and lamb are mixed in a suitable large bowl with the spices and onions and garlic. If you like the taste of fresh coriander, do not use whole coriander seeds. Mix instead fresh parsley and fresh coriander (a small handful), chop it very fine and mix it with the meat. Make it in the morning and place the dish in the refrigerator for the evening, where the steaks are shaped and grilled.
Form 4 steaks of 800 g of meat so that each person gets a juicy steak of 200 g. Grilled by indirect heat over grill briquettes 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Brush the steaks with olive oil when turned. I will return with the time that I used in my grill. 4 minutes on each side.
Shopska Salad: Cut the tomatoes into quarters. Peel the cucumber and cut it into cubes. The spring onions are cut into small slices and the salad is cut into smaller strips. Chili peppers and olives are cut into very small slices. Parsley minced. The feta cheese can be bought in cubes or whole pieces which are then torn over the salad. Serve either in a large bowl or portioned. Olive oil, cider vinegar and salt are poured / sprinkled first on serving. Adjust how strong you want to make the salad with chili peppers, take out the kernels and the salad will not be too hot (hot).
Serving: Out in the open air around the grill a late evening hours.
Garnish: There is hardly anything other than chopped parsley, that makes it. Pour well with dressing on the salad and deep the bread in it.
Drink: A good red wine is the case. I found a French red wine Cabernet-Syrah in the Supermarket.
Hints: If you don't have a barbecue ready, you can successfully cook the steaks on the pan in olive oil and butter.
