Bolognese (Tomato Meat Sauce)

BologneseThe words in bold letters should be items found in your fridge or pantry to follow the recipes in this blog.  Even if you buy in bulk, we will use it in future recipes.

This recipe will give you enough sauce for 2 separate meals.

1 lb minced veal/or beef

1 lb minced pork

3 jars (24 oz/680g) ground tomatoes

1 can (28 oz/796 ml) diced tomatoes

1 can (28 oz/796 ml) spiced ground tomatoes

¼ onion chopped

1 carrot chopped

1 celery stalk chopped

1 tbsp flour

¼ cup milk

¼ cup olive oil

4 bay leaves

Salt & Pepper to taste

Sauté onion, carrot, and celery in olive oil at medium to high heat. Season with salt and pepper.  Add the meat.  Season with salt and pepper.  Stir.  Once the juices dry up, sprinkle the flour and stir.  Add the milk.  Once the milk is absorbed, add the different tomatoes and bay leaves.  Stir.  Simmer covered for 1 hour and uncovered for 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally.

This sauce can be used immediately or stored in the freezer in 500ml containers.
