Hand Made Macaroni with Meat Sauce - speciality of Žrnovo


Žrnovo is small place on Korcula island. There is an 'agrotouristic' restaurant called 'Gera'. They offer only vegetables that they grow in their garden and fish that they catch that day. We had 'kerna' fish (caught that day by diving) with potatoes and 'zeje' - never tasted something fresher; we had to wait for the owner to 'harvest' our dinner from their garden! They also offer local hand made macaroni that are only made in that small village. They're called 'Žrnovski Makaruni'.

Žrnovo


Ingredients:
Macaroni-
500 g flour
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup water
Meat sauce-
1/3 cup olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
2-3 tsp paprika
500 g mince (or finely chopped beef)
1 cup beef broth
1 can diced tomatoes
2 tbs tomato paste
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
3-4 tbs parsley leaves, chopped
1 tsp oregano leaves, chopped
salt to taste

Method:
Macaroni-
Mix all ingredients and make a stiff dough. Let it rest 15-20 minutes, then cut small pieces. Wrap each piece of dough around a skewer and rub between your palms to form macaroni. Take off and place onto a clean cloth; repeat with remaining dough. When everything used, cook macaroni in salted water  in 3-4 batches (they will come to the surface; boil for a couple of minutes more). Take them out and place onto oiled serving plate.
Meat sauce-
Heat oil, saute onion, then add other vegetables. Mix well and add meat and spices. Cook until meat looses its pink colour. Add broth and canned  tomato paste, season to taste. Cook for 5-10 minutes.
Spoon meat sauce over the macaroni; sprinkle with shaved Parmesan cheese (optional).



Žrnovski Makaruni ('makaroni na iglu')

Navodno, ovakvi makaroni se jos samo prave u Žrnovu.
Specijalitet su u mnogim restoranima seoskog turizma, posebno restorana 'Gera' kojeg smo posjetili. 
Taj restoran nudi samo ono sto sami proizvedu ili ulove toga dana. Jeli smo ribu 'kernu' sa krompirom i 'zejem' - nikad nesto tako svjeze nisam dobila prije u restoranu. Morali smo cekati dok povrce nije bilo ubrano, a riba je tog dana ulovljena. Suvlasnik je sam ronio na dubinu , jer je to jedini nacin da se kerna ulovi.

Potrebno:

Za makarune-
500 gr brasna
1 k soli 
1 jaje
1 K maslinovog ulja
1 solja (240-250ml) vode
Mesni sos / preliv-
1/3 solje maslinovog ulja
1 veci crveni luk, sjeckan
1 mrkva, sjeckana na kockice / rendana
1 stabljika celera, sjeckana
1-2 cena bijelog luka, protisnuta
2-3 k crvene paprike
500 gr sitno sjeckane govedine (ili mljeveno)
1 solja govedje supe / bujona
1 konzerva sjeckanog paradajza
2 K gustog paradajz sosa
1/2 k svjeze mljevenog crnog bibera
3-4 K sjeckanog persuna
1 k origana
so po ukusu

Nacin:
Makaruni-
Pomijesajte sve sastojke  i umijesite tvrdje tijesto. Ostavite odmoriti 15-20 minuta, zatim isjecite na manje komadice. Svaki komadic ovijte oko pletace igle (ili prutici za kebabe) i trljajte izmedju dlanova da se formira makaron. Skinite sa igle i postavite na cistu krpu. Kad zavrsite sa oblikovanjem makarona, skuhajte ih u zasoljenoj vodi u 3-4 maha. Kada isplivaju na povrsinu kuhajte par minuta duze, zatim vadite na nauljenu posudu za serviranje.
Mesni sos / preljev-
Zagrijte ulje, proprzite luk, zatim dodajte sve ostalo povrce. nakon par minuta ubacite i meso Pirjajte dok meso ne izgubi svoju pink boju. Dodajte zacine, supu, paradajz i sos. Kuhajte jos 5-10 minuta. Zasolite prema ukusu.
Pospite sos preko makarona i pospite parmezanom (po zelji).

  2. Najviše volim s putovanja imati neku uspomenu na određeno jelo koje kasnije mogu i doma napraviti. Odlični su ti makaroni, a sigurno je bio pravi doživljaj jesti u restoranu seoskog turizma.
