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...

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...

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 r...

Being unfamiliar with Serbian food, I can't claim that this is "authentic." Tasty, though, it is! It has very interesting flavors, and my teenage boys have requested that I make it again some ...
