Prepare a small amount of beef stock in advance. It is easiest to make this using a quarter of a beef stock cube in a measuring jug. Pour about 100ml of boiled water over it and stir well.
Chop 2 cloves of garlic as finely as possible. Put 500 grams of minced lamb and 500 grams of minced beef in a large bowl. Crack an egg into the bowl.
Now add a teaspoon of dried oregano, 1 teaspoon of paprika and 4 tablespoons of beef stock. Mix everything together well with your hands. Season with some salt and 6-10 drops of Tabasco.
Use between 60 and 70 grams of meat and roll it into an oblong shape as shown in the photos. Repeat this step until all the meat has been used.
Drizzle all sides of the cevapcici with olive oil.
Heat a griddle pan over medium-high heat. Griddle the cevapcici on all sides until evenly browned.
Repeat until all the sausages are cooked. Enjoy your meal!
