Eastern European Kotlety
Ingredients40 m servings 338 cals
- Mix ground beef, cracker crumbs, onion, egg, milk, garlic, kosher salt, and black pepper in a large bowl until evenly blended. Shape meat mixture into twelve 3-inch patties about 1 1/4-inch thick.
- Heat vegetable shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear patties until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking, uncovered, until patties are no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes more. Remove patties from skillet and drain on paper towels until ready to serve.
- Cook's Note:
- Grandma used to make these with Nabisco Royal Lunch Milk crackers...they have been discontinued for some years now. Instead, I used Heritage Mills Classic Lunch Milk crackers (made in Canada) which I purchased at my local Demoulas Market Basket store. However, any other similar milk cracker may be used in this recipe.

Although I have not tried these it is basically the same recipe I use. The only exceptions are I use the trinity of meat: beef, pork and veal. I also brown the patties then put them in the oven ...
If you enjoy a plainer type of meat patty, then this is for you. I personally enjoy things with more flavor. I would try a recipe with a lot more seasonings next time.
The Kotlety turned out very delicious. What a great meal; it reminded me of my mom's kotlety.
