There are quite a few different tochitura recipes such as Moldavian, country-style, Oltenian, shepherd’s tochitura, etc. I chose the Moldavian style being the one often made in my home. It’s very easy to make and extremely tasty. Essential ingredients: hot sausages, smoked sausages, pan-fried pork meat, eggs, sheep burduf cheese and of course, a lot of polenta. You can add also ham, fried pork belly, sour cream, cheddar cheese, goat cheese and a lot more.
The only problem with this recipe……. lots of calories.
From time to time, maybe not often enough, I have to visit Chef John blog and try another incredible recipe from his repertoire. This time, I chose the Cajun Chicken Ragu and the results were amazing. For the pulled chicken meat I used some Cajun chicken breast perfectly done on the BBQ and for sausages I used a combination of: home-made Hungarian, home-made Romanian and some Hot Chorizo but you can use any type of sausage you like.
