So, everybody knows how to make bolognese sauce, right?
Well, my flatmate Peter didn’t and so I gave him a lesson the other day.
Recipe and instructions below the links.
- 400 gr ground beef
- 400 gr ground pork
- 250 gr chopped bacon
- 6 garlic cloves, peeled & sliced
- 1 large red onion, chopped
- 3 italian green peppers, chopped
- 500 gr mushrooms, sliced
- 1 courgette, diced
- 2 tsp basil
- 2 tsp oregano
- freshly ground black pepper
- chili flakes (optional)
- 2 – 400 gr tins chopped tomatoes
- 1 – 280 gr jar “sofrito” (tomato sauce)
- 250 ml rioja
- salt to taste

In a large frying pan sauté the garlic, onion & peppers in a tbsp of olive oil with the bacon pieces on medium heat and cook until the veg are soft. Then add the ground pork and beef and cook until browned. In a large pot cook the mushrooms in a tbsp of olive oil on medium heat until the liquid has evaporated. Pour the meat mixture into the pot, mix well, and then stir in the basil, oregano, chilis and black pepper. Add the diced courgette and cook for about a minute . Then add the tomatoes, “sofrito” and red wine. Reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for about an hour and a half, stirring every 10-15 minutes.
