Transylvanian belly soup

Belly soup is one of the most loved and popular soups on the Romanian menu. There is almost no reutaurant & icircn menu not to be found. Today we suggest you to try a belly soup according to the Transylvanian recipe. What does this have in addition to the usual belly soup? Pork brisket or legs, which bring an extra taste and a little fat, so that you can give it the right flavor.

  • 1 kg pre-cooked beef belly
  • 1 piece of brine
  • 2 onions
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 300 ml cream
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 3 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Bay leaves
  • dressing vinegar

Wash the broth and boil it in salted water. Remove the foam that forms on the surface.

Separately, boil the belly in water with a little vinegar. In the pot with the brisket, put the cleaned vegetables and let them boil until the meat comes off the bone. The vegetables will be removed at the end anyway.

When the belly has boiled, you can cut it into strips and add it to the pot with the brisket. Put the bay leaves and let it all boil together.

Crush the garlic and mix it with salt, as for the mujdei, until it turns white. You can also add a little oil.

Beat the eggs with the cream and add a pinch of hot soup to bring to the same temperature. When the mixture is warm, you can pour it into the pot.

Put the garlic cream to taste. Season with salt and pepper and turn off the heat. Straighten the soup with vinegar and extra garlic / cream, if you feel the need.

You have to see it too.

The recipe is part of the project "Discover Romanian culinary traditions" developed by the public relations agency, Russenart Communications in partnership with the Arpis brand. Do you want to enjoy a traditional Romanian food, delicious and prepared like at home? Mimi tells you what to do! Listen to Mimi!

The recipe “Belezdrugă” was received from Pensiunea Valea Mariilor, Com. Sant, Valea Mare Village, Bistrița-Năsăud County (Transylvania) and was prepared by the chefs of the Casa Oprescu restaurant (Tineretului Park). Since March, the activities within the social responsibility project have been carried out with the support of the main partner of the project, the Arpis premium brand, launched in 1992. The Arpis product portfolio contains corn flour, wheat flour, semolina, vinegar, oil, etc.


• salted sheep's cheese with salt

• Arpis cornmeal in the form of polenta wax (that thin content that is obtained before chewing polenta or a very thin polenta)

Method of preparation:

Stir in the onion, add the sausages or bacon, well fried, then pour the hot cirrus mixed with the cheese, leave it on the fire for a few minutes, then serve with pickles, preferably sauerkraut or pickles. Note: Traditional recipes are often prepared "by eye", not by weight, but the quantities are relatively easy to estimate!
