Croatian Old Time Veal and Baby Goat «pod Peku»
160 mins (prep 20, cooking 140)
13 ingredients

This is very old traditional Croatian meal, at least more than 500 years old, or more. We usually eat this during feasts or some religious holidays. It is of course meal before America was discovered so there are no potatoes, but, today we put some because potatoes will soak meat juices. In Croatia, nobody will refuse if you have been offered “peka”. “Pod peku” means that you have a special pot with iron cover. We put the covered pot into the fire place and cover with hot live coal. Today, we can use aluminum foil and bake it in oven. It is almost the same as “peka”, but it will never have the same taste. Of course you may use other meat, lamb or turkey.
