I’m 99.9% sure I will never make carnați again, but I might as well post about the process just in case.

Clean the small intestines really well of the pig you have just killed. Note: I don’t think the intestines were cleaned as well as they should have been because my hands smelled like treaba mare (#2) the rest of the day. Grind about 4 pounds of beef. Add about 2 Tbs of salt, a couple tsp of pepper, and about 10-12 cloves of pressed garlic. Add 9-10 eggs, and mix well with hand or spoon. Add 1 cup of bread crumbs, and mix well again. Put the intestines on the meet machine with the correct attachment, and start turning.
