    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Gently melt the butter & oil in a large pan which can be covered.
    2. 2
      Add chopped carrot, onion, celery, bacon & bay leaves, gently cook until golden.
    3. 3
      Add minced steak & garlic, season well with salt & pepper, cook until meat is no longer pink.
    4. 4
      Add wine,cook until liquid reduces a little, add mushrooms thyme& oregano.
    5. 5
      Blend the tomato puree with the beef stock,then add to pan along with the tinned tomatoes, stir well then cover and cook on lowest possible heat for a couple of hours. The secret to this dish is long, slow cooking as to allow the flavors to meld.
    6. 6
      As this dish slowly simmers you will need to add more liquid; use either wine or a little water.I find a little wine does best.
    7. 7
      After two hours or so remove from heat, remove bay leaves, add 2 tbsp of cream, stir well, serve with hot pasta or spaghetti with fresh baked garlic bread and grated cheese.

      I first had spaghetti bolognese in Brussels at a tiny Italian cafe; I've been looking for the perfect recipe to make this ever since. Now I have found it! This is SO tasty! I went and saut?ed the vegetables in the bacon drippings. I pur?ed all the veggies in my food processor. Next time I will probably add some red pepper flakes (personal preference). LOVE this and THANK you for a great recipe!

      This is fantasitc! Great for lasagna too. I have tried other ground meats and like a mix of beef and pork the best.
