Loose Polenta

- 2:57



4 1/2 cups water

1 cup yellow cornmeal or stone ground



Combine cornmeal with 2 cups of the water in a bowl; cover and let stand for several hours or overnight.   When ready to cook, transfer the cornmeal to a heavy-duty saucepan and add the remaining 2 1/2 cups of water, the salt and stir the mixture well. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and stir often until the mixture thickens and begins to bubble and leave the sides of the pan; cook about 35 to 40 minutes.

Pour onto serving platter; add the beef cubes and sauce and serve hot.

Variation: Spread the polenta out onto a rimmed and oiled baking sheet and refrigerate until firm; cut into slices and lightly fry in olive oil and serve with the beef.
