It is also a kind of a flattened meatball, rolled in breadcrumbs and fried.
We traditionally make it out of minced pork, and add breadcrumbs and chopped onion and eggs.
Sometimes instead of breadcrumbs we use a stale bun soaked in milk.
Some people add oregano and other herbs to season it.
I use black pepper and salt for normal dinner 'kotlet'.
However, I found a nice definition of 'mielone' which are called here Russian cutlets.
All right. I hope this isn't confusing.
Polish minced meat cutlet
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Yield: depends on how big your burgers are - I made
- 500 g minced pork
- 1 egg
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup fine breadcrumbs
- oil, for frying
Take out a big bowl and add meat, egg, onion and half of breadcrumbs.
Add salt and pepper.
In the palm of your hand form meatballs. Roll each meatball in the remaining breadcrumbs. Flatten it a bit to form a patty/burger.
Fry for 6-8 minutes on each side or till they're brown.
My mother-in-law makes killer fried beetroot puree that is ideal for Polish 'mielone'.
I'll try to post it sometime next week :)
Have a nice weekend!
