  1. Another great recipe from Kristyna! Love that the outside of the karbanatky is crunchy and the inside is tender and so tasty! Thank you!

    1. 🙂 I am glad you like them. You perfectly explained how wonderful they are. 🙂

  2. I tried it and added Indian Kabab mix for taste. Delish!!!! Thank you Krystina!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

  3. Hi,just a suggestion. I am from Frydek-Mistek. We always had a gravy or compot with this meal, or else it is too dry to eat and the potatoes stick in your mouth.

    1. Yes, we used to have compot as well growing up in Czech. Even a pickle is good. 🙂 These Karbanatky are pretty juicy though.

  4. This was delicious! A gravy would have gone nicely with it, but it definitely didn’t need it in my opinion. My four year old’s enjoyed it as well (of course I’m lucky to have protein loving kiddos). The only downside? I definitely ate too much!

    1. So glad to hear that you all enjoyed it. 🙂 It is hard to stop eating them. 😀

  5. Great recipe, simple and tasty. Just to share a thought, here in Texas we cover everything with hneda omackab (brown gravy). But found grandma’s old nakladany zeli or pickled cabbage recipe and made some to have in just such a case. Anything like this is awesome with a little nakladany zeli on the side. Besides, if it ain’t covered in gravy, we pickle it. – Na zdravi

    1. I am sure it would be also tasty with gravy. And yes nakladany zeli is perfect combo for sure. Glad you enjoyed it!

  6. Thank God that there is some one that shows western people what good food is….and can be made EVERY DAY…please keep up the history lesson for the young and old……lucky husband…..hay..look after this good woman!!!!

    1. Thank you for your kind words! 🙂
