Zagreb Veal Steak

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by nitko

This is popular meal from Zagreb. There are some disputes about weather egg should be in it or not, but going through literature I have found that it is 50-50% chance to find egg. So, it is going to be an egg in it. I think positive. Of course you can do it without egg.

This was really a sensational dish. Not very difficult... I veered a little from this recipe... I rubbed the steaks with some garlic and rolled them up, secured with a few toothpicks after crumbing them. I omitted the cooked eggs. After preparing it,, put in the fridge to set the breadcrumbs. I will definitely make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat veal steaks to make them thin.
  2. Cut cooked eggs into halves. Slice ham and cheese.
  3. Salt steaks from inside and put slice of ham, slice of cheese and ½ egg on one side of steak. Cover with other side to make it look like a pocket. Beat the ends of the steak to close them.
  4. Whisk 3 eggs like you are making omelet. Put them into flour, than eggs, than breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry steaks until golden on both sides (you may use half lard half oil mixture, it is much better).
  6. Cut lemon into slices and serve with steaks. We usually eat the steaks with French fry potato.
