Croatian Cevapcici with Ajvar

Cevapcici is a traditional meatball, like kofta or köfte, made with a mix of several meats. We use an authentic Croatian recipe of ground lamb, pork, and beef, and pair it with our wildly irresistible Wildfare Fire Roasted Red Pepper Ajvar (mild or spicy!). Serve it with flatbread, sliced tomato, and onion for a delicious dinner. Pro tip: make a bunch of cevapcici and pop them in the freezer so your meal prep is ready for another night!
- 1 lbs meatloaf mixture (ground lamb, pork, and beef)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 Tbsp water
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- Wildfare Organic Fire Roasted Red Pepper Ajvar (as much as desired)
Peel and mince the garlic.
Add the ground meat mixture to a bowl, then add the garlic, water, baking soda, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Mix and knead the ingredients together by hand.
Take a bit of the meat and mold it into a log shape, packing the meat well.
In a grill pan over medium-high heat, cook the meatballs on each side for 3-4 min, or until medium-well done.
Serve with Wildfare Fire Roasted Red Pepper Ajvar for dipping, warmed flatbread, sliced peppers, tomatoes, and onion.
