My meat recipes
Here are some of my Italian meat recipes. There are recipes for beef, veal, pork and poultry so enjoy.
Polenta is a very common dish on our table especially in the winter. It’s the perfect accompaniment for stews or sausages and ideal with some fish dishes.

This classic recipe from Lombardia, also called costolette alla Milanese, goes well anytime of year.
This is great dish that goes well with polenta.
This Tirolean recipe from the extreme northern regions of Italy is really good if you like a spicy beef dish. The best way to serve it is with a soft polenta.

If you like rabbit this is a tasty and easy to make recipe. As for the name “alla campagnola” means rustic or country style, since it doesn’t sound well translated I’ve just left it in Italian.

Not a typical beef stew as this this recipe is an all meat dish cooked in red wine.
The exact translation for Bauletti would be, “little trunks.” This dish presents itself well on the table and is good too.
A light second dish that is good whenever you can get fresh zucchini. This is one of those kind of dishes my mom made every so often.

This is a really tasty way to prepare veal.
Thin slices of veal filled with prosciutto, Parmesan cheese and cultivated mushroom slivers. They can be prepared hours ahead and refrigerated until ready to be cooked.
A classic recipe with Marsala wine. I learned to make it when I was six years old.
