Sarmale was the first Romanian dish that I tried and fell in love with. Pickled cabbage with pork and/or beef baked in a tomatoey broth, the sarmale I ate was served as a cabbage roll stuffed with meat and rice. This pot, however, was a more deconstructed version. No matter how it's prepared, sarmale smells divine and tastes like heaven.
