Roe deer with porcini mushrooms

Cut the venison pulp into bite-sized pieces, peel the onion and cut it into pieces and stick it with the cloves.

Peel the garlic and mash it, put the meat in a bowl, add the onion, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, wine and grappa and leave to marinate for 3 hours.

Drain the meat and dry it. In a saucepan, brown the meat with the butter and when it is colored, season with salt and pepper.

Cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes adding its filtered marinade.

Peel and slice the porcini mushrooms, add them to the roe deer 10 minutes from the end of cooking.

Capicollo Recipes - Recipes

  1. 1.2 kg of flour (when I find it, I use the manitoba)
  2. 800 cl of water
  3. 2 sachets of yeast (I use the Master Baker of Paneangeli)
  4. Two tablespoons of oil
  5. Salt according to taste (I put two teaspoons)

If you make it by hand, the same ingredients, in the same order, in a bowl. Start kneading with a fork and, as soon as the dough is "workable", transfer it to the table and give it into your arms until it is smooth and not sticky (attention, at first the dough will seem too sticky and you will be tempted to add more flour: do not do it and be patient as you work it, everything will be fine).

Put the dough in a very large bowl, cover it with a cloth soaked in water and put it to rise in the oven (off.). About every 3 hours "redo the ball" and put it back to rise.

The time depends on the "strength" of the flour and the rising temperature: I would say no less than 3 hours and up to 24 (if the flour is Manitoba, therefore quite strong, then at least 8 hours).

If you make bread in the warm seasons, I suggest you let the dough rise in the refrigerator, in order to slow down the "leavening", without affecting the "maturation".

For cooking, static oven at 220 & # 176 or ventilated (better) at 200 & # 176, in any case with a steel pan full of water placed on the bottom of the oven, so that there is the right humidity.

Wait for the oven to reach temperature and only then make the shape (the one you prefer, of course) and place the loaves on the baking sheet (with parchment paper).

Make a cut in the center of the loaf and along its entire length (1 cm deep), then bake.

I let it cook for 45 minutes if ventilated or 1 hour and 5 minutes if static.

Remove from the oven and place the loaves on a rack so that the moisture can escape (if you place them on the table, the underneath will soften).

Wait for it to cool and devour it.

PS 1: for flour, avoid those that are too industrial and look for those a little less common, if only to vary (when on weekends I have the possibility of a few trips "out of town", I always look for some local mill).

PS 2: I remember that Manitoba is a place in Canada, where a grain rich in gluten grows, which allows excellent leavening. Often there are "Manitoba" flours which, in reality, are normal flours with added gluten.

Properties of the capocollo

Being a sausage we are talking about a very fatty food, which is why its consumption should be moderate. It can be a source of cholesterol. Then pay attention to the possible presence of additives that pose a danger to human health.


There are testimonies of the cup that come from Sardinia with Punic-Phoenician derivation. In the Middle Ages, the loin was considered a symbol of lust.

Variety of preparation in the kitchen

And we finally arrive in the kitchen, where for the capocollo recipes they are not missing. We are obviously talking about a cold cut that is excellent to serve as an appetizer. The cut of meat can also be used to prepare delicious main courses such as a baked pork neck.

Preparing the capocollo in a pan is really easy.

First, peel and cut the onion into cubes, then put it to brown in a pan in which you will have heated the Santa Lucia butter together with the garlic cloves.

Do not let the onion brown, but just let it dry slightly, then cook the capocollo, and brown it for a couple of minutes on both sides before blending it with the red wine.

Season the meat with salt and pepper and cook for about 15 minutes, turning it from time to time. Once cooked, transfer the slices of capocollo cooked in a pan onto a serving dish, remove the garlic and blend the bottom with an immersion blender, then pour it over the meat as a sauce.

In the Kitchen With Masterchef

I state this recipe by saying that I love all pork and I like it in every way, but above all cooked on the grill without any added flavor only salt.
Every so often, however, I like to vary and on Saturday evening I prepared this delicious recipe.
Today I present to you the more hasty version, but in the original recipe the meat is accompanied not only by mushrooms but also by boiled rice and french fries: practically a single dish.

Ingredients for 2 people:
2 slices of capicollo
mixed mushrooms
vegetable broth
extra virgin olive oil

Season the slices of meat with salt and pepper and put them in a non-stick pan with the butter (enough) after a few minutes of cooking, add a little milk and continue until cooked.
In another pan, cook the mushrooms: brown a little chopped shallot in a little extra virgin olive oil, add the mushrooms and cook for twenty minutes, adding vegetable broth if necessary.
Once the mushrooms are cooked, put them in the pot together with the meat and cook for five minutes so that the meat takes on all the flavor of the mushrooms.
Serve immediately

In a container that will contain the capocollo, we insert a base that keeps the meat a little raised, so if water is formed it will not touch the capocollo itself.

Insert the meat and cover it completely with the salt mixed with the spices.

We leave the meat covered in this way for a week, the salt will harden you will see.

It must be kept in a dry and cool place.

Certainly so it does not have the shape of the classic capocollo and so let's shape it with our hands giving it a round shape, it is very soft.

Let's put it back on the salt turned 45 ° compared to before and cover it again with its salt.

Let's leave it like this for 2 days.

At this point, let's wash it well, removing all traces of salt.

Dry it very well with a clean cloth and place it on baking paper.

Sprinkle it completely with pepper, squeezing well with your hands to make the pepper adhere better.

Now let's tie the capocollo with food string, you can do it by following this short video.

Once tied, wrap it in vegetable paper.

Then in the Yellow paper and tie it the same way we tied it previously.
