This is a very yummy Russian-style dinner. The meat patties are authentic Russian recipe called “kotlety”. Kotlety is the meat patties made with ground meat mixed with minced onion and bread crumbs, then pan-fried. The most popular side dish for Russian kotlety is the mashed potatoes, and that’s what’s on the plate 🙂 I have Russian meat patties served with mashed potatoes, and on the other plate are simple cucumbers cut into spears. The sliced veggies are also a very popular way to serve side vegetables in Russia.
