Bosanski Lonac - Bosnian Pot

“Got this recipe from Lorac on the Eastern European thread. It's GREAT! Easy to make and relatively inexpensive since it is mostly vegetables. My husband, who is Serbian, loved it! Sorry some of the ingredients are in metric, but I just guessed on some of them as noted in the directions. I'm just guessing on the servings since it made quite a large pot of stew. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut up vegetables in large pieces.
  2. Cut meat in large, bite sized pieces.
  3. Layer meat and vegetables in a large soup pot. (one layer of vegetables, one layer of meat, and so on).
  4. Add 1-2 dl (deciliters) of white wine and water. (I just eyeballed water and wine. Added about 1 to 1 1/2 cups total).
  5. Cook until meat and vegetables are cooked. (Mine took about 2 1/2 hours on low to medium heat).
  6. NOTES: I did not stir this stew. I just let the vegetables and meat simmer together and they took care of themselves. I did not have to add water or extra wine and it turned out great. I also added a few "shakes" of paprika after everything was finished cooking and served with crusty bread.
