Lung stew


Wash the lung under running water.
Pierce an onion with a few cloves, place it in a skillet along with a celery stalk, a chopped carrot, a laurel leaf, some parsley and 4-5 cloves of garlic, add water to the skillet and bring to boil.
Place the lung in the broth.
Simmer the "coradèle" for a couple of hours and in the meantime, prepare the sauce: chop the shallots and a dozen stalks of parsley, then fry them in butter with two bay leaves, sprinkle  a shot of Grappa, then half glass of vinegar.
As soon as the liquid will be reduced by two thirds, add  the white flour and add  a liter of filtered broth (from the skillet with the lung), stirring with a wooden spoon.
Simmer the sauce for about ten minutes on moderate heat and in the meantime cut the boiled lung in piecese the size of an olive.
Filter the sauce through a sieve, pour it on the meat and  cook for a few minutes in the sauce. After sprinkling  a little chopped parsley on the meat, serve immediately.
