Really in the mood for a basic polenta, but did not have a lot of time.
Used white pepper for a bit more zing.
Easy and delish as promised.
Very good. Easy
This recipe didn't work for me. I followed it as written but after 45 minutes I had a soupy half-cooked pot of polenta.
Oh, please. I gist of this recipe is that cooking should be virtually effortless. How nonsensical. Polenta is SO easy and effortless. Bring 4 quarts water to a boil; with a whisk gently cascade 2 cups coarse polenta into water and immediately reduce flame to low and set timer for 20 minutes.. Continue whisking until boil subsides then then stir with whisk to keep polenta from sticking to bottom of pot. Continue stirring with whisk every few minutes. At about ten minutes add 1 cup grated parmesan and 12 tbs butter and 1 tbs salt. Occasionally stir mixture until timer expires. One can add cream or not for a stiffer result. Have cooked this method for 20 years with consistant results. This will fill a half sheet pan and when refrigerated overnight results in sliceable sizes the one ca either grill or reheat and top with various veg and a fried egg.
I'm not the polenta maker, I do the meats and the knife work, but my wife loved this recipe and she does a LOT of polenta. No standing around stirring, no paste like consistency, no more left after dinner!
