PRO Tips for the Homemade Skinless Sausage Recipe Mititei or Mici

➡️ Sausages without casing or skinless sausages belong to the most popular food recipes in several East European and Balkan countries. Cevapi or cevapcici are popular all over the Balkans and there are lots of recipes prepared with pork, beef, and sheep mince in different combinations.


➡️ The recipe for these homemade skinless sausages is not based on a Serbian cevapi sausage recipe, as many would think, but on a Romanian mici or mititei recipe. There are large differences between the used spices. In addition, the use of food bicarbonate is specific only to Romanian mititei or mici.


➡️ Romanian mititei or mici are grilled ground meat rolls. Generally, this sausage type is made of a combination of pork, beef, and lamb, but some recipes call just pork or a combination of pork and beef. The most often-used spices include garlic, black pepper, and thyme, but you’ll find recipes that feature other flavors as well, just like this one. Whichever is the used combination of ground meat and spices, Romanian skinless sausages are extremely delicious! This is the reason why mititei are so popular throughout the country!


➡️ To get the best results when making skinless sausages, there is very important to wait until the next day to grill them. In this way, the meat has enough time to combine with spices. Also, it’s very important to make medium-sized sausages. If they are too large the core remains raw, while if they are too small the sausages will the burned and dry inside. Another important thing when grilling skinless sausages is to flip them often, especially when you grill them on coal.


➡️ The homemade skinless sausages are usually served plain, just with mustard and bread, sometimes with ketchup or Romanian cold garlic sauce called mujdei. Needless to say, these sausages can be served with various side dishes such as fries, mashed potatoes, and so on.


➡️ When the weather is bad or you can’t grill, you can roast the sausages in the oven, yet they are better when you roast them on the coal grill because of the smoky taste combined with the aromatic spices.
