Chislic

It’s highly unlikely you’ll find chislic anywhere outside South Dakota, but in the southeastern part of the Mount Rushmore State, it’s as common as pigs in blankets. Introduced to the state late in the 19th century by “Volga Germans” (who also brought the runza, aka bierock), it is cubed meat (lamb, beef, venison) that gets deep-fried and well salted, served individually on toothpicks or lined up on a skewer. Officially declared the State Nosh by the South Dakota Senate in 2018, it’s common at parties and community events and still somewhat rare in restaurants.
