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.

Ingredients:

  • pork ribs or  pancetta (bacon)
  • sausages
  • homemade tomato sauce
  • 1 onion
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • fennel seeds
  • polenta
  • salt

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.
