Bolognese Sauce/Soup 0 Picture


  • 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



Step 1

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.
