Slavinken is a Dutch meat dish consisting usually of ground meat called "half and half" (half beef, half pork) wrapped in bacon, and cooked in butter or vegetable oil for about 15 minutes. Besides meat, the mix also contains onions, a lot of different vegetables and some herbs like basil and marjoram that help to increase the meat’s flavor.
In Netherlands, savoring Slavinken with boiled potatoes represents a tradition. Originally, the filling of a slavink was made from smoked sausage.
The slavink was developed in 1952 by a butchery, Slagerij Spoelder in Laren, which helped him win the "Golden Butcher's Ring" award.
