Pork and fennel meatball strozzapreti with braised chicory and chilli


You'll need

1 kg coarsely minced pork shoulder (see note) 1 tbsp each fine sea salt, finely ground black pepper and dry-roasted fennel seeds 200 ml dry white wine For dusting: plain flour 100 ml olive oil 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 500 gm dried strozzapreti To serve: finely grated parmesan, extra-virgin olive oil and crusty bread   Salted chilli 50 gm long red chillies, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp sea salt flakes   Braised chicory 100 ml extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 800 gm (about 2 bunches) chicory, trimmed, coarsely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • For salted chilli, process chilli and salt in a food processor to combine, transfer to a sterile jar and set aside in a cool dark place to ferment (1 week).
  • 02
  • For braised chicory, heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add onion and stir occasionally until starting to caramelise (8-10 minutes), add chicory and stir until tender (10-12 minutes), season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine pork, salt, pepper, fennel seeds and half the wine in a large bowl, roll into walnut-sized balls and dust with flour. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, add meatballs in batches and cook, shaking pan occasionally, until golden (3-4 minutes). Return all meatballs to pan, add garlic and stir occasionally until tender (1-2 minutes), add 1 tbsp salted chilli (reserve remainder for another use) and deglaze pan with remaining wine. Add braised chicory, toss to combine, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (8-10 minutes), drain (reserve 50ml cooking water), and return pasta and reserved cooking water to pan. Add meatball mixture, toss to combine and season to taste. Serve hot, drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil and scattered with parmesan, with crusty bread.
Note Ask your butcher to prepare the minced pork; it may need to be ordered ahead.

This recipe is from the May 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
