3 lbs. fine ground beef (80/20)
2 lbs. fine ground pork (80/20)
1 ½ cups cold ice water
Combine 5 lbs. of ground meat of your choice (a combination of 3 lb. ground beef - not very lean- and 2 lb. ground pork works very well) with the condiment packet contents. Add 1 1/2 cups of cold water. Mix up the meat, spices and water in a large bowl until well combined.
Optional - cover and put in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours to allow the spices to perfume the entire mixture. When ready to grill, make sure you have a well-heated grill. Shape your meat mixture into small sausages, about the size of an average adult's finger ( in length) and not very thick.

Mici, (pronounced MEECH) the most beloved street food in Romania is skinless sausage, known as mici or mititei. Mici are clearly oriental, but due to Romania’s long and complicated history with the Ottoman Empire which heavily influenced local cuisine — the street snack has taken on its own flavors over the years, to be distinctly and uniquely Romanian.
Mici became one of Romanians’ favorite dishes, a fact proven by statistics provided by ProAgro Federation. They show that Romanian annually eat 440 million mici. During the small May 1st vacation, when Labor Day is celebrated in Romania, mici is the most beloved food and Romanians eat about 30 million.
Mici are a combination of two meats, usually beef and pork (pork is king in Romania!). The meat is mixed with secret spices, grilled for a few minutes, and served piping hot alongside a fresh bread and mustard. And they are absolutely delicious.
The origin of the mici is shrouded in mystery. The most common story dates back to about 1900 and tells the tale of a small restaurant in the Lipscani area of Bucharest where the chef, known as a gratargiu (from gratar – grill, and the suffix –giu from Turkish), one day ran out of sausage casings. Rather than disappointing the line of people waiting for their grilled sausages, he decided to take a risk and rolled the minced meat up into the now well-known mici shape and cooked them anyway. Clearly they were a success and are now a staple of Romanian cuisine. The restaurant in question is said to be Restaurantul La Iordache, although other restaurants also claim the honour, and the building still exists today in Bucharest’s historic center
The smell of "mici" is something that ANY Romanian knows from a mile away and can hardly resist.
