500 gr of minced beef ( you can also use 250gr of beef and 250gr of pork)
1 large onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
Salt & Pepper
1 Tbsp of sour cream (optional)
1 piece of white bread soaked in a little bit of milk without the crust (optional)

6 medium potatoes
150 ml of milk
Salt & Pepper
Pinch of nutmeg (optional)
Step 1 : Peel and chop onion with garlic finely.
Step 2 : Cut minced meat into stripes
Step 3 : Fry the onions first then add garlic and cook for about 3-5 min, add a pinch of salt and pepper

Step 5 : Create round shapes out of the mixture and place them on a chopping board or a plate
Step 6 : Add a bit of oil or butter into your pan, set on medium heat. Fry as many Kotlets as you can fit in a pan for about 3-5 min, then turn them around and fry again for another 3-5 min until they are done inside.
Step 7 : Just before they are done, add a bit of water into frying pan and cover the lid, this will make Kotlets more juicy. ( Again this is optional)
Step 8 : Check one Kotlet to make sure meat has cooked properly, especially if you are using pork ( fry it longer) and serve with pasta, potatoes or rice. Always add some garnish from fresh vegetables to make it more colorful and yummy
