Cookbook:Grilled Meatballs (Mititei)
Mititei (grilled meatballs) is a typical Romanian dish. Usually in Romania you could find the prepared meat in most of the food shops, and you only have to cook them.
- All the ingredients are mixed together, forming a paste; the ingredients are not optional, and the quantities of condiments varies, according to the individual tastes.
- The meat paste is then shaped by hand, into 7-8 cm (3 inch) by 2-2.5 cm (1 inch) cylinders (about 50 grams each).
- It is best to barbecue(Grill) them rather to fry them, because they get additional flavour if a little smoked, but a frying pan is ok. DO NOT use oil. It will only ruin the flavour. Try a spoon of pork fat, or fry them in their own juice. It is best to not let them dry to much, they are better if they are juicy.
- You can eat them with salt, mustard, and of course, bread is necessary.
