Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
minced beef,

pancetta or bacon, cubed,

carrot, onion and celery, finely chopped

red wine (but you can use white wine too)

meat stock

pureed tomatoes

Preparation

  • Well, you have to chop finely the bacon and saute in a pan for few minutes (you must not add any oil or butter!), stirring frequently, on low heat.
  • Then add the vegetables and stir. Keep on stirring frequently for few minutes.
  • At this point add the minced beef and stir. Keep on cooking for few minutes.
  • Pour in the wine and stir. Bring to the boil again and let the wine evaporate partially.
  • Now add the pureed tomatoes and meat stock. Stir, lower the heat and keep on cooking, half-covered, until the cooking juice is reduced.
  • At this point add other hot meat stock. If you want you can use milk.
  • You can cook Bolognese sauce for at least 2 hours. So if you want to make Bolognese lasagna you’d prepare the sauce 1 day ahead.
