Pork Chili with Polenta

Pork Chili with Polenta

Polenta and chili, not your regular chili, more like a meat sauce. This recipe is super yummy.
Servings 4-6 4-6



  1. Roast the red pepper over a gas flame, turning with tongs, or broil until the skin is blackened. Transfer to a bowl, cover and cool. Peel, seed and chop the pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven or other heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and pancetta and cook until well browned. Add the ground pork, thyme, fennel, garlic, chili peppers, onion, oregano, and roasted red pepper, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with the wine, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add 2-3 cups chicken stock and simmer for a few minutes.
  3. Bring 2 cups chicken stock and the milk to a low boil in a saucepan. Whisk in the polenta and cook, whisking until thick but pourable, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add the butter and then the cheese, stirring until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Ladle the polenta into shallow bowls and hollow out the center. Fill with the chili and top with more cheese. Enjoy!
