Satarash (originally sataraš) is a traditional South-Eastern European stew-like dish made with onions, bell peppers, and ripe tomatoes. My mother makes it, and her mother used to make it, and now I am making it. This dish is one of the rare vegetable dishes that children LOVE to eat. I grew up eating it, and every time I smell the scent of fried onions and bell peppers, my mount starts to water.
If you ask anyone from Bosnia, Serbia or Croatia, what do they think about satarash, they will most certainly say that is ”Grandma’s Dish!”, and in most cases, they used to eat it with rice. It is usually made at the end of the Summer and the beginning of the Autumn, and it is really easy to make. Satarash is a really great way to use those over-ripe tomatoes, that you can’t cut into slices anymore, and also to use bell peppers that started to wrinkle, and not tossing them into trash or compost.

As I said, making satarash is really easy. You don’t even have to follow the amounts of ingredients. You can use as much of the tomatoes and bell peppers as you have. All you need to do is sauté some onions on a little bit of oil, then add bell peppers and sauté for few minutes. Add cubed tomatoes, season with salt and black pepper, lower the heat and cook (stirring regularly) until almost all liquid is evaporated, and bell peppers are soft. And voila! It is as easy as that. Now all you need is a bowl of rice, and you have a delicious and healthy dinner for your family to enjoy.
Satarash is also great on burgers and as a side dish to any meat. You can make it for BBQ parties, and everyone will love it. Now let’s make satarash…
