Kotlovina is indigenous specialty of Zagreb and northwest Croatia. Pork chops and sausages are fried in a very big metal dish and then are stewed in their own juice, wine and spices. Sometimes they are given to some smoked meat and more frequently some vegetables to give to special taste - onions, potatoes, tomatoes, paprika ... The most important thing in preparing kotlovina is that it should be done outdoors. It was only recently that it moved to the restaurant kitchens from the fairgrounds and roads in front of the inns where it was made and invited the guests.
