Romanian Pork Recipes

Updated on April 6, 2015

Savoury Romanian Pork Recipes

Romanian food has a special character all its own, with many different cultural influences. This type of cuisine is rooted in the Ottoman empire, but you can see the influences of neighboring countries like Germany, Serbia, Bulgaria and Hungary in it.

Pork has long been a staple in Romanian cuisine, and it's a versatile meat that is used in many different ways.

One delicious way to utilize pork is in an omletă ţărănească, which translates to 'peasant's omelette'. The peasant's omelette is the kind of dish that every household would make differently-- it's a "throw in whatever you can find in the refrigerator" type of meal.

Another delicious but simple way to prepare pork Romanian-style is to bake it in a pan in the oven. The blend of seasonings adds a wonderful aroma, as well as a great flavor.

Omletă Tărănească - Romanian "Peasant Omelet"


2 large sized eggs

2 oz or 50 grams of ham or boneless pork meat leftovers

1 tsp of sour cream

1 tsp of lard


Directions for food preparation:

1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them until foamy. Add sour cream and a pinch of salt (use at your discretion based on your preferences).

2. Cut up the ham or pork into small 1/2-inch cubes. Add them to the eggs.

3. Place a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and add the lard. When the lard is melted, pour in the egg mixture.

4. When the bottom of the omelet is soild and just beginning to brown, flip it quickly with a large spatula. Allow the other side begins to brown. Fold over the omelet and transfer to a plate.

3-4 juniper berries

1 garlic clove

1/2 tsp of paprika

Tsp. coriander berries



Directions for food preparation:

1. Leave the defrosted meat in the fridge overnight to allow it to air out. This will promote browning. To prevent the meat from totally drying, dampen some paper towel and cover it loosely.

2. Sprinkle some salt to the meat then rub it in. Add minced garlic clove, juniper berries, and coriander berries, rubbing the spices all over the meat. Return it to the fridge under a paper damp paper towel. Let the meat sit for 3 or 4 hours to absorb the flavors.

3. Sprinkle and spread paprika on top of the meat.

4. Place the meat in an oven tray greased with lard.

5. Place the pan with the meat mixture in the oven. Put the oven to 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Set a timer so you don't forget!

6. At the 30 minute mark, lower the heat to 350. Baste the meat with the liquid in the pan periodically.

7. Cook the meat for another 60-90 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees. Remove the meat from the oven and tent it with foil. Allow it to sit for 25 minutes to rest.

9. Slice the meat with a knife and then arrange it on a platter. Pour the liquid from the pan onto the top of the meat to create a delicious topping.

10. Serve it with French fries or cucumbers.
