Sausage rice and veggies
This was very good

The sausages were more like hamburger shaped like sausage. Solid texture and good flavor, not too heavy on spices
They reminded me of gyro meat or lamb almost, very good
The rice was well cooked but not mushy or sticky and had a nice body to it almost like risotto or orzo with a pleasant meaty flavor with a hint of sweetness from the veggies.

I like this enough to look up a recipe for it, if anyone has one they like please let me know

Thank you for this, old man. It's the meal I've eaten last summer, in the day of my SAR training graduation. Very nice memories.

Housil, thank you again! :D

I´m happy you liked it :D

I like the Cevapcici for it´s nice, spicy (but not hot) taste and the "solid" rice.
Cavapcici is a traditonal east European dish. Mostly know in former Yougoslavia
@Adrian: Hows about Romania and Cevapcici?

The easiest way would be, using ground beef like for hamburgers, spice it like for meatloaf but roll it like a finger.


When you pulled open the "Gulasch", you saw a foil inside the container you had to cut away. That´s the difference between the civilan and military version. The foil protects the metal container from the foods acid. Usually the military entree containers are not designed to be pulled open, we always just cut them open.

housil, since when is this feature with the foil in the entrees? I never hat checked this, since I always cut it open - is it only a feature of HERTA brand or BUSS brand also?

Lars

Since their introduction.
Usually the foil is attached to the container inner surface. It get´s loose after boiling (to) hot/long. If you just warm it up and cut the the container open, you never will notice that there is a foil layer.
All manufacturer had to do this.

Anyway, thy are eaten hot, right off the grill or very short after, with bread, mustard and some beer. :D
