pezzetti

horse meat stew from the Salento

Pezzetti di cavallo al sugo is a slow-cooked stew of horse chops, carrots, onions, tomato sauce, peperoncino and olive oil. According to connoisseurs, the best version is 'alla pignata' in a terracotta pot. They like it so much in the Salento peninsula that they stuff it in rather messy sandwiches as well as eating it as a main course.
