City Chicken Legs

Comment on this recipe

Remove meat from skewers before eating or eat as a drum stick. Veal and pork is preferred combination of meat. Pork shoulder works well. Sirloin steak is preferred for tenderness.

Ingredients

1-1/2 pounds veal (or beef)
1-1/2 pounds pork
2 to 3 eggs, well-beaten
Crushed soda crackers
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Serves 6. Cube meat into 1-inch or bite-sized pieces. On wood skewers, alternate beef and pork cubes. Pack tightly together. Dip in beaten eggs and roll in cracker crumbs. Cover bottom of an electric 10-inch (or larger) frying pan with a thin layer of cooking oil and heat to 300 degrees. Fry for about 30 minutes. Turn during frying as needed. When legs are cooked, remove and place on paper towels.
