|Romanian Grilled Minced Meat Rolls
Romanian Grilled Minced Meat Rolls (MICI) are great when grilled, but you could roast or pan-fry. Serve hot with good Italian bread and mustard accompanied by a cold beer. It is great for backyard parties.
2 pounds ground beef
8 ounces chopped suet
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon finely ground juniper berries
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons beef broth
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, suet, baking soda, caraway seeds, garlic, salt, pepper and juniper berries using your hands. Mix with your hands for about 15 minutes, adding a little bit of the water at a time. This part can be made a few hours ahead of time if you like.
Preheat a grill for high heat. With wet hands form the meat into rolls about 3 inches long and 1 inch thick. Brush lightly with oil.
Grill the meat for 5 to 10 minutes, basting frequently with a mixture of beef broth and any remaining oil, until well done.
