Loose Polenta


  • Polenta
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal or stone ground
  • Salt


  1. 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.

  3. 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.
