500 g beef neck
500 g pork neck
13 g of salt
1 g ground black pepper
2g of sugar
300 g of bacon
300 g of gouda cheese
1 small onion
Cut meat into cubes 2x2cm. Salt, pepper, add sugar (it gives the meat elasticity). Beat the meat through a meat mincer. Mix the stuffing with your hands. Cover with film and put in the fridge for 12 hours. After 12 hours, pass the minced meat through a meat mincer a second time. Then gently knead the minced meat with your hands until the consistency of the paste.
From this filling you can cook different types of splash: classic or gourmet.
In the case of gourmet, you can add bacon, cheese, chili peppers, ham, any smoked meat to the minced meat. As Drago jokes: “Serbs stuff meat with meat.”
Splash is prepared exclusively by hand. Grease your hands with vegetable oil. Take 300 g of minced meat, mix it well with cubes of cheese and bacon. Then wrap it in a bag and gently press to make it flat. The splash should be flat. Ideally, the thickness of the splash should be from 0.5 cm to 1 cm. Grease the grill pan with vegetable oil and heat to 180 ° C. Fry for 10 minutes, turning constantly.
For submission: Onion cut into thin half rings. Add a little sweet paprika and a few drops of vegetable oil.
Hot splash is served with onion, ajvar and kaimak. Enjoy your meal!
