Leave the sauerkraut to soak in cold water the night before, or pour 2 tranches of boiling water over it and drain well;

Cut the cabbage stalk and separate the most beautiful leaves;

Cut them to the desired size;

Finely chop the leftovers;

Mix the pork with the grated onion, rice, salt, pepper and spices for the sarmale;

Fill the cabbage leaves with the composition;

Combine the meat with the chopped greens, pepper and tomato paste, with the rice, a little wine, salt, pepper and thyme.

Fill the cabbage leaves and roll them. Arrange a few leaves and a layer of chopped cabbage on the bottom of the pot. Place the first layer of sarmale, a layer of chopped cabbage, slices of smoked, tomato and pepper paste and repeat until you finish the ingredients. The last layer should be chopped cabbage.

Sarmale exploded

At a time when Romania was not yet a stable and flourishing democracy like now, many people were hungry. He was not as hungry as now, when you find it in all the supermarkets, but not everyone has the necessary money, but he was as hungry as when everyone had the necessary money, but the food was empty or decorated with jars of peas, boxes of Vietnamese “shrimp” and some canned ocean fish in tomato sauce. And then, as now, we were all equal. And then, as now, however, some were / are more equal than others.

In those days, as now, I had two children. Small and sometimes capricious to eat. Or, rather, selective. They liked it sarmale, whether they were in cabbage leaves or in vine leaves, or they were filled with real meat or chopped Parisian. Protein to be. However, they did not get along very well with the fibers, so the sarmales, before being devoured, were carefully stripped of the vegetal cover. They had the same fate stuffed peppers.

An antidote had to be found against this discriminatory behavior. The first solution at hand was cabbage in Cluj. As the preparation consisted of successive layers of minced meat, cabbage, rice (not necessarily in this order), the "selectors" quickly discovered the security breach through which the layer of cabbage could be easily removed from the other layers. Then the consort moved on to the final solution, sarmalele exploded: a kind of cabbage from Cluj in which, however, the basic ingredients (minced meat, minced cabbage, rice) were no longer arranged in superimposed layers but mixed thoroughly, so that the extraction of small pieces of Brassica oleracea muratus or crudus it had become virtually impossible with the technique available at the time.

What some would look like sarmale exploded made with the ingredients available today?

At Lidl, you can find a wide range of minced meat: pork-beef or beef-pork mixture, with 15% or 30% fat, in 0.5 or 1 kg casseroles. You can also find the "Bio" version.

Chopped sauerkraut taken from Profi: 1 jar contains 0.55 kg of cabbage and 0.25 kg dies.

Instead of tomato broth / paste, find (also at Lidl) Passata di Pomodoro (ie mashed tomatoes) in 500 mL cans.

Rice, what more. Find everything that comes to mind. However, try to get it out of your head by taking the one that says "sarmale rice".

What do you need?

  • 100 g smoked pork (bacon, kaiser, peasant ham, etc.)
  • 0.5 kg minced pork - beef mixture with 15 - 30% fat
  • 0.55 kg sauerkraut (1 jar of 800 g raw quantity)
  • 1 cup (100 - 120 g) round grain rice
  • 1-2 eggs (optional)
  • 500 mL mashed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper.

How do you proceed?

Drain the cabbage well from the brine in which it stood and rinse it in 2-3 waters, then drain it well again and chop it. Initially it is very salty and is chopped into long fibers. In order not to eat it like spaghetti, it is good to shorten the fibers.

Cut the smoke into thin slices (3 - 5 mm) and place it on the bottom of a large saucepan (Φ = 26 - 28 cm), with high edges (4 - 6 cm), which can be baked with metal handles ). Preferably non-stick, in case you get rid of Facebook and forget the dish in the oven.

If you want, you can brown the smoke for 2 & # 8211 3 minutes on each side. It is not mandatory.

In a large bowl add the minced meat, eggs (without shell), rice and chopped cabbage. With eggs is a whole story between two large groups of housewives: those who lay eggs in the composition for sarmale and those who do not lay. From my point of view, if you don't have, don't put, and if you have, put. Or not. Season with black pepper. Taste the composition (yes, I know, there are people who can't stand steak tartare, but the kitchen requires sacrifices) and see if it still needs salt. You may not.

Pour the well-mixed mixture over the smoke from the pan, level it nicely and pour the mashed tomatoes over it carefully. Be patient to run to the bottom of the pan.

Cover the pan with aluminum foil, which you drill in a few places. Have a place where the steam comes out and don't get sarmale exploded literally. Not the other way around, but cleaning the inside of the oven is quite difficult.

Place the pan in the preheated oven at 180 - 200 ˚C. Leave her there for at least two hours without walking to her.

At the end of the time, take and taste. Try to see if the cabbage has cooked properly. No need to worry about meat and rice.

If the cabbage has passed the test, that's fine. Otherwise, leave the pan in the oven until you think the cabbage is edible. You don't need to keep the pan covered, and if you think it's necessary, you can add another cup of water to the composition.

Serve hot. You can also put some cream on top and a glass of semi-dry Merlot on the sides.

A spoonful of broth can be added to the sarmale composition.

Boil the stuffed cabbage over low heat, in the oven, with a lid, for at least 2 hours.

If you prefer fatter sarmales, add pieces of bacon with mice.

Sarmale craving

When I feel like something, I do (here we are talking strictly about food, because I already see raised eyebrows). It's one of the advantages of my job. Sometimes, if in doubt, I call my mother. That's the thing, I don't know them all and when it comes to the things I grew up with, I think my mother is much better than me. This time I didn't call her to ask her how to make sarmale, I did it a few times in my life, I just called her to brag that they turned out good for me, although I did them a little differently.

I used pork and beef (mixture 70/30) in which I mixed salt, pepper, dried thyme, fresh dill and sun-dried tomatoes marinated in basil oil (I have a stock that I try to get rid of. I still use them these days). I also mixed in the meat (600 grams) a cup of rice with large beans (which I bottled on low heat with a finely chopped red onion) and a good tablespoon of smoked pork breast, well dried and chopped , produced somewhere at Gura Humorului.

I scalded a cabbage and peeled off its leaves (a bit thick but I had a choice of 30 small sarmales), I filled the sarmales and with what was left of the meat and cabbage mixture I made a chopped knife with which I wallpapered the bottom of the pan in which I boiled the sarmales (under the mixture I put the slices of smoked sausages). I put a cup of mashed tomatoes folded with water over the sarmale (I didn't cover them at all, the sarmales don't boil in water, they are smothered in steam so that they remain whole and firm), I also put some dill and parsley leaves over them, a handful of cherry tomatoes, the lid on top and ready, I let them sweat under the lid for an hour and a half. That's right, that's why it inspires you today.
