Bolognese Sauce

Serves people


  1. Chop the beef into small morsels; you may also use a meat grinder, but keep the meat coarse.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped beef and cook, stirring constantly, until uniformly browned.
  3. Stir in the chopped vegetables and continue cooking until vegetables are tender and mixture is dry. Stir occasionally.
  4. Stir in the chopped garlic, rosemary, and marjoram. Cook for a minute or two, then pour in the red wine and bring to a boil. Sprinkle in the flour and stir well. Add the beef stock, bay leaves, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
  5. Stir in the tomatoes and juice and return to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about an hour. Adjust seasonings, remove the bay leaves, and serve tossed with pasta. (Rotini, farfalle, or ravioli recommended.)
