Polenta – Homemade with Sausage and Pork Ribs – Italian Cook Anna Maria
We go back to basics with Anna Maria and her family. This traditional recipe will warm you in the upcoming winter cold. Polenta – Sausage – Pork Ribs ….
Really delicious with a good glass of red wine and some grated Parmigiano.
Hope you enjoy this recipe in Italian with English subtitles.
- pork ribs or pancetta (bacon)
- homemade tomato sauce
- 1 onion
- extra virgin olive oil
- fennel seeds
Cooking time: about 40 minutes for “polenta” and 45 minutes for the meat sauce (it takes time but the outcome is sensational!)
The sauce preparation:
In a large saucepan brown the pork ribs or the bacon together with the chopped onion.
Add the fennel seeds and a pinch of salt.
Meanwhile, remove the skin of the sausage and crumble the meat over a saucepan. Then add the extra virgin olive oil and put over fire. When the sausage is browned, add it in the pan where the pork ribs/bacon are cooking. Then add the homemade tomato sauce and stir well.
The cooking time is around one hour. Stir occasionally.
