Recipe type: Ancient Cuisine
  • 500 grams minced meat
  • 1 French roll, soaked in white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 50 milliliters Liquamen* (can be replaced by 1/2 teaspoon salt plus a little white wine)
  • some stone-pine kernels (pignoli) and green peppercorns
  • a little Caroenum**
  • baking foil
  1. Mix minced meat with the soaked french roll. Ground spices and mix into the meat. Form small burgers and put pine kernels and peppercorns into them. Put them into baking foil and grill them together with Caroenum.
*Liquamen: A salty fish sauce. Most of the time you can replace it with salt and a little wine.

**Caroenum: A very sweet wine boiled until it is a third of the original volume, then mixed with honey. You may use grape juice for a slightly different flavor.
