Print Recipe


  • 250 g cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 100 g butter


  • We need a half pound of corn flour, not very fine.
  • And at the end we'll need some butter, I used salted butter.
  • In a pot we boil about a liter of water in which I put a tablespoon of salt.
  • When the water boils, we start to turn the flour into the water, stirring constantly.
  • After I put all the flour, I put the fire down, and let it boil for about 10-15 minutes, stirring always to not burn.
  • Polenta is boiled well when it begins to peel off the edges of the pot, it is important to mix often.
  • Some make's polenta more flowing, others thicker, depending on how they like it.
  • At the end we put about 100 g of butter, stir until the butter melts and the polenta becomes creamy.
  • And that's what we've done with the pork, we can serve it hot or roll it over a wider dish and let it cool down a bit.
