Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnian Stew – Bosanski Lonac (Bosnia and Herzegovina)

“Many Balkan recipes use a combination of different meats, and this traditional stew from Bosnia-Herzegovina is no exception….For a hearty warming meal, serve with mountains of buttered mashed potato, jacket potatoes or crusty buttered bread.”


1kg cubed meat – mixed roughly 50:50 beef and pork
Plenty of salt and pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
1 cabbage, cut into wedges
3 carrots, peeled and cut into thick slices
4 large tomatoes, roughly chopped
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces
2 onions, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 green peppers, roughly chopped
150ml white wine


Place a layer meat in the bottom of a large flame-proof casserole or soup pan. Season with salt, pepper and paprika

Add a layer of vegetables, and then repeat, until all the meat and vegetables are used up.  Add the white wine and roughly the same amount of water

Cook over a low-medium heat until the meat and vegetables are cooked – this could take 2 – 2½ hours.  Try not to stir unless absolutely necessary. Add more water if needed
