  • 1 lb beef leg
  • 3 ½ oz lard

Prepare the Piacenza-style “crushed lard” by chopping the lard, garlic and parsley and sautéing with half an onion sliced very thin and 50 gr of butter.

Salt the meat and add to the sauté with a chopped mixture of celery, carrot, onion and parsley. To taste, add some tomato sauce.
