This dish may be the very definition of comfort food. The tender, flavorful, slow-cooked meat rests upon a creamy-soft bed of polenta—all so satisfying on a very basic level. Fresh peas and cippolini onions enhance the dish. Small, flat cippolinis are sweet onions that are fairly easy to find in most supermarkets. If they’re not available, you can substitute smaller pearl onions; you’ll need about twice as many.
