Definition, origin and preparation of tastasal
To prepare it, slice the pork with a knife (it’s not necessary to mince it), then mix in the salt, rough black pepper and a bit of garlic. The meat is used as seasoning, usually for risotto but sometimes also for pasta, in which case the meat must be kept out of the fridge for a few hours before cooking.
Ingredients for six:
- Vialone nano rice, half a kilo.
- Tastasal 400 g
- Butter 100 g
- One onion
- A clove of garlic
- Meat broth
Preparation: boil the broth and throw in the rice. At the same time, in a pan sauté the onion and garlic in butter until gold. Add the tastasal and let it cook thouroughly. Then, mix the tastasal and rice, and you’re done cooking. Just add a pinch of nutmeg and grated Parmesan cheese as desired.
Pairing: This dish matches well with a red wine (Bardolino Classico and the Valpolicella variations Classico, Superiore and Ripasso would make an excellent combo).
