Grechaniki with minced meat according to the Ukrainian recipe on video

Grechaniki is a unique dish of Ukrainian cuisine, which is prepared with or without minced meat. At first they started adding grains to the meat to save money, but then they realized it was tastier. So the Greeks became an independent dish. And if you add a special sauce to them, it will be much tastier.
