Italian Sauce Bolognaise
What you need to make the sauce Bolognaise:
1 kg mined beef
5 garlic cloves, chopped
3 carrots chopped
2 onions chopped
800 gr tomatoes ( or use 1,5 cans of tomatoes. 1 can = 400gr )
2 chilis ( optional)
2 Tablespoons vinegar
1 Teaspoons Sugar
1.5 cubes vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
some olive oil
How to make it:
1. Chop the Carrots, Onions and the celery as small as possible.
Most important part of the Bolognaise is the Soffritto.
For that melt the Butter in a frying pan and add a some Olive oil (1-2 Tablespoon). Than add the chopped carrots, onions and celery.
Let it simmer on low heat for at least 30 min. Take care it doesnt get too hot so it wont fry.
2. Chop the toamtoes and put aside. I used 1 kg tomatoes and 3 tablespoons of Tomato paste.
3. Now fry the minced meat in another frying pan until it changes its colour to slightly brown. Than transfer it to a big bowl and add 1/2 litre of water, the broth cubes and the vinegar. As soon as it starts to cook add the chopped tomatoes and the sugar.
4. When this starts to cook add the Soffritto and the chopped garlic and chopped chilis.
Let this cook for at least 2 Hours, better would be 5 hours or more.
After this add salt and pepper.
The Bolognaise doesnt need any other spices, u will see :)
The pieces in the picture are mushrooms. I put half can of mushroom and it fits perfectly.
