DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare Polenta:
  • In a 3 quart saucepan, heat water and salt until boiling.
  • Drizzle in polenta in a thin stream, whisking constantly, until all polenta is incorporated and mixture begins to thicken, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Switch to wooden spoon.
  • Remove from heat and continue to stir until thick as paste.
  • Stir in cheese and continue to stir until it is melted and incorporated.
  • Keep warm.
  • Salami al'Aceto:
  • Place the olive oil in a 12-14 inch saute pan and heat over high heat until almost smoking.
  • Add the salume or salami and cook for 2 minutes, until it is browned and crisped, then turn on other side.
  • Remove the salume to a plate and add the wine to the pan.
  • Swirl over high heat (YOU BE CAREFUL AND THEN WATCH YOUR PAN) to reduce for 2 minutes.
  • Then add vinegar and reduce another 2 minutes, until the liquids turn syrupy.
  • Divide the polenta evenly among 4 plates and lay some salami over each portion.
  • Serve with chilled red wine.
  • Enjoy!
