Ingredients:
300 g cornmeal
1 kale
Grated parmesan cheese
30 g butter
For the sauce:
300 g minced beef
200 g peeled tomatoes
1 onion
1 carrot
1 celery rib
Red wine
Olive oil
For the béchamel sauce:
80 g flour
½ l milk
60 g butter
Description:
To make the sauce, clean the vegetables, cut it into pieces and sauté on 4-5 tablespoons of oil. Add meat and sauté it for few minutes on high heat. Then pour a glass of wine, add salt, pepper and tomatoes and cook for about 30 minutes, occasionally stirring. Meanwhile, cut the kale leaves and boil in salted water for half an hour (in a separate cooking pan). Then slowly add the cornmeal and stir continuously, so there wouldn’t be any blobs. Add salt and continue cooking for another 40 minutes. Pour polenta into an ovenproof dish, which you previously greased with butter, then pour the sauce over the polenta and finish with béchamel sauce and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Bake the casserole in an oven for 15 minutes at 200 °C, until it turns gold in colour.
