Ingredients

  • 2

    Tbsp butter

  • 1

    Tbsp olive oil

  • 1

    cup finely diced onion

  • 1/2

    cup finely diced carrot (or carrot scrapings)

  • diced fresh garlic cloves or garlic powder

  • pinch salt

  • 1.5

    lb gr beef

  • salt

  • ground black pepper

  • pinch cayenne pepper

  • 1/8

    tsp nutmeg

  • 1.5

    cups milk

  • 1.5

    cups red wine

  • 28 oz can tomatoes

  • 2

    cups water

Directions

Melt butter with olive oil in a large saucepan over med heat, cook onion and carrot and fresh garlic (if using) with pinch of salt until onion turns translucent, about 5 min. Stir in ground beef and cook, stirring constantly until meat is crumbly and no longer pink, about 5 min. Season with 1.5 tsp salt, bl pepper, cayenne and nutmeg (and garlic pwdr if using) Pour milk into gr beef mix and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often until most of the milk has evaporated, about 5 min. Raise heat to med hi and pour wine into mixture, cook and stir until mostly evaporated, about 5 min. At this point, I transfer to a slow cooker and add tomatoes and 2 cups water and cook at least 3 hrs, to 6 hours. For soup, add pasta pieces till cooked. If using for a sauce, it will thicken better in a saucepan instead of the slow cooker over 3 hrs on a low simmer, uncovered.
