Stew with cornmeal mush is the Sunday dish par excellence, especially when it's cold outside and you just want something warm, comfortable and that satisfies your stomach and senses. Our recipe is the smart version of the classic stew since the meat is lightly floured and then cooked in a pressure cooker; the times get shorter but the flavor is still exceptional and authentic. The secret lies in dosing the liquids correctly and, once the lid is opened, the final result will be tender, succulent and truly flawless. And while the stew is cooking, prepare a soft cornmeal mush with a strong flavor, the ideal companion to any meat stew. Follow our instructions and serve this dish as a main course or single course at a family lunch or a convivial dinner with friends.
