This is truly a Romanian recipe. More romanian than this you can't find i think. One i always eat with pleasure but at the same time one that I never manage to cook as well as my mum or grandmother. I guess is the amount of pork that always confuses me.
Today however I am sharing with you my mum recipe. And believe it's and worth making.
smoked pork ham - if you can buy it still on the bone it's great; 500 g white beans, washed well to get rid of all impurities; 1 carrot; 1 parsley root; 1 bay leaf; 2 onions finely chopped; 2 tbsp of tomato paste; 50 ml of vegetable oil; salt to taste; thyme - optional;
