Russian Burgers (Kotlety)

Flora S.
Course Dinner


  • 1 pound ground beef or meat of your choice
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup water or more as needed
  • 1 cup bread crumbs or as needed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or to taste


  • Combine pork, onion, garlic, and egg in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add water a little at a time, stirring until pork mixture absorbs it and reaches the consistency of sour cream.
  • Pour bread crumbs onto a plate. Scoop up medium-sized balls of the pork mixture with a tablespoon and drop into the bread crumbs; flip to coat both sides.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry patties, in batches if necessary, until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes per side.


Cook's Note:
If needed, you can add some bread crumbs to the meet mixture to help it thicken up or to help with the stickiness.
