Pork With Garlic

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Len in Bucharest

This is something very simple based on a traditional Romanian food called "pomana porcului" which is made from the initial meat when you cut the pig in a traditional farm.

This "memorial meal" for the pig is great, and needs only some salt & pepper, mamaliga, and a wedge of fermented cabbage (varza) to complete it. Good eats! Thanks for posting. Now where's the smoked sausage?


  1. Cut the pork meat in small pieces.
  2. Fine cut the garlic.
  3. Heat the oil.
  4. Add the meat and wait until 99% done.
  5. Add the garlic and stir until the garlic is brown. Depending of how much you brown the garlic it might loose completely the specific smell so it's a question of trial and error. I always end up wondering where all the garlic has gone.
  6. Serve hot with polenta.
