At Christmas make a special gift like a fine distillate16 December 2020
Perfect dish in winter seasons, it takes a lot of hours but it will deserve it. Typical ingredient of our region, due to the ancient hunting tuscan tradition.
Here’s ingredients for 4 people
800 gr. Wildboar thigh 80 gr. Minced pork meat 350 gr. Tomatos sauce 0.5 lt. Red table wine 2 Carrots 2 Celeries 1 Onion Rosmariny Laurel Juniper Cloves 4 Spoons of Extravirgin olive oil Salt and pepper q.b.
Here’s how to prepare it
Cut the wildboar meat in medium cubes and brown it for 10 minutes in a pot without any ingredients, then take it off. It will help to avoid the typical bitter taste of the wild boar meat. Brown onion with carrots and celery with extravirgin olive oil for 10 minutes, then add the meat and laurel, rosemary, cloves and juniper. After few minutes add the wine, blend and add tomato sauce with pork meat and let it cook slowly for 3 hours, then add salt and pepper at your preference and serve it with its creamy sauce, it is ready!
The recipe is kindly granted by the Trattoria il Pozzo in S. Angelo in Colle (SI) which has always made typical Tuscan cuisine, following the seasonality of the products, and is equipped with a well-stocked wine list.
