Cookbook:Slavink  Slavink

Slavink is a Dutch meat dish consisting usually of ground meat called "half and half" (half beef, half pork) wrapped in bacon (the Dutch equivalent of bacon is, however, not smoked), and cooked in butter or vegetable oil for about 15 minutes.[2] A variation of the dish called blinde vink is made by wrapping ground veal in a thin veal cutlet. Slavinken and blinde vinken are usually prepared and bought at the butchery or the supermarket;[3] a standard slavink, before cooking, weighs around 100 grams.[1] The bacon is "glued" to the filling with transglutaminase, an enzyme that bonds proteins (and is usually extracted from animal blood).[4]

The slavink was developed in 1952 by a butchery, Slagerij Spoelder in Laren, which won him an award, the "Golden Butcher's Ring." Originally, the filling of a slavink was made from smoked sausage.[5] The term "slavink" loosely translates to Lettucefinch.[6] The term is probably an abbreviation of slagersvink, that is, a "finch" prepared by the butcher ("slager").[5]

The slavink often emblematizes traditional Dutch cuisine, as in the book De taal van de verpleging, a Dutch language guide for non-native nurses working in the Netherlands,[7] and is especially favored by the older generations.[8]
