POLENTA PIE

Puedes servir este pastel de polenta con queso gratinado por encima, o con una salsa de tomate.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ kg of Arcor Presto Pronta instant polenta
  • 1 liter of water.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 100 grams of cream cheese
  • Arcor Corn oil
  • 2 onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tomato
  • ½ kg of minced meat
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oregano
  • 1 hard-boiled egg

Preparation:

Stuffing: Heat oil in a frying pan, fry the onion in very small pieces and add chopped cloves of garlic. Once browned, add the crushed tomatoes so that they release all their juice. Cook until the tomato sauce begins to thicken. Then add the minced meat, season to taste and cook.
Once cooked, remove from the heat, add the sweet (or spicy) paprika and the oregano. Again, stir until all ingredients are mixed together. Finally, add the bay leaf.
Prepare the polenta: put plenty of water to boil in a saucepan. When it bubbles, add the salt and leave for a couple of minutes. Pour in the cornmeal little by little while stirring very quickly, for about a minute. The polenta will gradually turn into a very thick cream. Remove from heat, add the buttery cheese and stir again until well blended.  Pour half of the polenta into a baking mold (oiled), and then add the stuffing on top. Cover the top with the rest of the polenta.

Bake in the oven at 160° C.
