Classic Bolognese Sauce
- 1 pound ground beef (preferably 80% lean and 20% fat)
- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 4 oz pancetta, diced
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, finely chopped
- 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup dry red wine
- 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Heat the olive oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat.
- Add the pancetta and cook until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes.
- Add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook until they start to soften, about 10 minutes.
- Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
- Add the ground beef and pork and cook until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, about 15 minutes.
- Add the white wine and cook until it has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
- Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, whole milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Bring to a simmer.
- Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
- Use a heavy-bottomed pot to prevent the sauce from burning and sticking to the bottom.
- Don’t rush the cooking process. Allowing the sauce to simmer for 2 hours allows the flavors to develop and intensify.
- Use freshly grated nutmeg for the best flavor.
- If you prefer a smoother sauce, use an immersion blender to blend the sauce to your desired consistency.
- Leftover Bolognese sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
