Karageorge Schnitzel - Cream cheese stuffed Schnitzel

Updated on May 16, 2013

How was the "Karageorge Schnitzel" born?

Not many people know, that this pride of Serbian cuisine is not a »national dish« and that its author is well known.

Mica Stojanovic, from Cestine near Gruze, is one of the most important chefs that Serbia ever had, he was so good in his business, that in his early twenties he became the head chef in a reputable Belgrade restaurant called »Golf«. He worked there for some time, without any bigger problems, before one day in early 1959, some of important Russian characters found a way to this reputable restaurant.

And unlike the custom it is in Serbia, to order some »Pasulj«, »Sarma«, »Kupus« or »Podvarak« ( All Serbian favourite national dishes ), they wanted to order something different to ease their hunger, their chose was a »Kyevan Schnitzel«. It's not like our »hero« Mica in this story didn't know how to do a »Kyevan Schnitzel«, but he didn't have enough chicken, which is the main ingredient for this specialty.

In order to solve this problem and to still keep his reputation and that of the restaurant, he decided to make them a new, tasty and never seen dish, with the ingredients he had at hand.

Starting with some modifications on the »Schnitzel«, he changed the type of meat and the filling, which then all together would be fried.

The result was a very delicious schnitzel with a very interesting look. But still, Mica wasn't totally happy with the result, so he decided to add some Tartar Sauce and decorated it with two pieces of lemon and tomatoes in such a way, that it looked like a Karageorge star ( Serbian Monarchy Medal ).


o this is where the name came from, how about I explain to you, STEP by STEP, how to make this delicious Serbian dish?
