Slow cooked eye of round steaks cooked with pizzaiola sauce are a classic Italian. The meat is very tender and the taste of dried oregano mark out the tomato sauce. As many of the traditional Italian stews, On Sunday feasts is usual prepare pasta tossed with the meat sauce.
Pulled Pork is one of my favorite American recipes! The meat cooked for hours at low temperature is tender and creamy, its flavor is intense and fragrant and it is really easy to do: it is a perfect dish for a party with friends in the winter nights! Today, I propose an Italian way to prepare the Pulled Pork: braised in red wine with juniper berries, mixed peppercorns and fresh rosemary. To recall even more Italian descent, I suggest to replace the classic bun with a creamy Polenta flavored with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and white pepper: it’s so tasty!
The “Ragù Barese” (Apulian meat sauce) is a Southern-Italian typical pasta dressing full of history and tradition. Even though it has improve some changes over the centuries, has maintained an intense and antique flavor. A few weeks ago I ate this dish at Enzo’s caffè in Portland and loved it: For a few minutes I felt myself in Italy, so much that along Alberta Street looked like there were appear olive trees! I’m writing here the recipe, so that a little ‘olive trees can grow in your kitchen! As with “Bolognese sauce” or” Neapolitan Genovese”, the secret to this recipe is a long cooking at a low temperature. In Italy we use a traditional crock pot, left on the stove for many hours. Here in America I tried to make the sauce with my slow-cooker and the result was perfect!
