Albanian dishes – Casserole with beans and dried meat

The bean is the source of proteins, as well as being a very tasty food that belongs to the traditional Albanian cuisine. At Hotel Castle Park Berat we serve it as a second dish in a clay pan and cook with dry onions, leeks, carrots, tomatoes, pure meat(Pastërma), olive oil and enrich it with different spices such as wild oregano, pepper, parsley and dill. This cooking can also be used to make different pastas such as penne or spaghetti for those who like it. This dish is a source of important biological nutrients, therefore on average 100 grams of beans contain about 52 grams of carbohydrates, 26 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat, 4 grams of fiber, essential amino acids, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and many vitamins. We welcome you to Hotel Castle Park, Berat to try the authentic taste of beans with pastrami with a fantastic taste.
But what is “Pastérmaja”? Many decades ago, Albanian families lacked a refrigerator to keep and store fresh meat.
The inhabitants of many of the deep mountain areas of Albania dry their meat to have and use it as a tradition that has been inherited for centuries. This early tradition is still preserved in the villages of Mount Tomor and at the request of our restaurants it is not going to disappear. never.
The pastrami can be grilled, or it can be cooked with beans and eaten with pickles. This is the most favorite winter recipe for every Albanian family.
Pastrami is not only very tasty, but also has nutritional value.
