Gjellë me arra is an Albanian dish of meat with walnuts. It is often made with veal or chicken.




  1. Place the meat or chicken in a saucepan, and cook over medium heat until tender.
  2. Remove the meat, and set it aside in a dish while leaving the remaining juices in the saucepan.
  3. In another saucepan, add the flour and stir over heat until it becomes light brown in color—do not overcook! Then, add half the butter.
  4. Add the walnuts, garlic, and egg yolks, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the meat juices from the other saucepan, and stir until all the ingredients thicken. Immediately remove from the heat to avoid solidifying the egg yolks. Fold in the meat.
  6. Pan fry the remaining half stick of butter until brown, and pour over the dish before serving.
