This simple polenta side dish goes well with braised short ribs, such as our Slow-Cooker Short Rib Ragu, brisket, or pork roast.

I love polenta, grits, cornbread, anything corn. The measurements were spot on and loved the thyme with the corn. My one addition was to add fresh sage also, fresh from my own garden. I think sage and corn and black pepper sing together. Thank you for this dish!
