pork hocks, meat removed
1 (14.5 ounce) can
uncooked short-grain white rice
I made this recipe for my boyfriend's serbian family party and it was the favorite dish among several people there, including myself. It's still being talked about a week later.
I followed the recipe and I just found it to be rather bland, though I'm also not big on casseroles
I think it calls for 2 hocks too many. Frankly, I’d use diced pork chops rather than the hocks, since the recipe also calls for bacon. I will cook in a frying pan or a Le Crueset type pan that will transfer into the oven, fry the rice until golden, use the refrigerated sauerkraut, not the canned. What, no fennel seed? I think I will cover the pan in the oven for 25 minutes, then remove the cover, and cooked an additional 10 or 15 minutes. It sounds delicious - Serbians rock!
Awesome! I slow cooked only one hock in the chicken broth, then used the chopped hock meat and then followed the directions exactly. Very good!
I really like beef, pork, sauerkraut, and rice, and I also enjoy trying new recipes. My expectations were modest, mostly due to the lack of seasonings in this casserole (which, according to Wikipedia, is typical for Serbian cooking). But wow. This casserole is amazing! The ingredients themselves provide ample flavor. The only changes I made were cooking it entirely on the stovetop instead of baking it, using a pork chop instead of pork hocks, and using a good-quality chicken stock instead of broth. I'll definitely make this again--in fact, I'm going to get up and do that right now!
Thank you for posting this! I made it for my family of 5 and all loved it. Cooked it exactly as listed here - oh, sorry, a little lie there - I chopped up 2 pork chops instead of the meat from the hocks.
Mmm! This is so good! I did everything exactly as written and cooked it for 35 mins! Thanks! SO yummy!
I didn't have pork hocks or chops so made it with ground beef and a little more bacon than the recipe called for. I was a bit unsure of what to expect from this recipe although all the other reviews were good. It is a fantastic dish! I was surprised how flavorful it is with very little seasoning. I guess the bacon and saurkraut gives it all it needs. My husband loved this and had three servings! It made a great leftover for lunch. Thanks for sharing this interesting recipe.
