Croatian Zagorje “kotlovina”
90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
11 ingredients
15 servings
This is very special meal form region Zagorje in Croatia. It is usually made for large groups of people, feasts, holidays, celebrations, or just drinking parties. The best is to use neck part of pork chopped into schnitzels, various sausages (preferably hot – we have one sausage nicknamed “Firemen’s party” because it is VERY hot), and of course pork chops. We use a special equipment (you can see on pictures), cauldron (in Croatian: “kotao”) and that is the origin of the name: Food from cauldron or “kotlovina”. This is recipe for about 15 persons but of course this can be reduced for smaller party. You can do it at home using frying pot but it will not be so great.
