    I'm planning a Croatian dinner for a large group and have a recipe for a vegetable dish featuring cabbage and green peppers. It says to "pour over Zafrig and simmer for 10 minutes" - recipe separate --- but there's no recipe for Zafrig there or on other recipe sites I've tried. Do you have one you can share?

    Zafrig is another name for a roux, which is a cooked mixture of flour and fat. Does the recipe contain instructions for cooking some flour and fat together?

    Anyway, if it doesn't, here's a recipe:

    Zafrig ingredients

    * 1⁄3 c Lard or oil
    * 1⁄2 large Yellow onion
    * 1⁄3 c flour
    * 1 T Paprika

    Cooking Zafrig

    1. Melt 1/3 to cup lard (or use oil or like quantity) over medium heat.
    2. Cut half of a large yellow onion into small pieces and simmer in the lard until transparent.
    3. Add 1/3 to cup flour and stir constantly until flour is dark brown.
    4. Add 1 tablespoon paprika; stir into paste and pour the paste over the cuspajs (recipe separate).
    5. Serve in large soup bowls and have plenty of french bread on hand.
    6. This is a meatless main course, serve at least once a week in jugoslavia.
    7. The zafrig is also used in boiled pinto beans with smoked ham hocks.
    8. "our favorite recipes" st.
    9. Anthony croatian catholic church.

    Many thanks for the Zafrig recipe (and explanation that it is a roux!). I'm just married to a Croatian, but people expect me to know all these things![/u][/i]
