Eva Longoria is a fabulous cook. She developed this recipe through many trial and error attempts, until it was perfected. Now we can all benefit from her trials. This is a really delicous bolognese. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
In a food processor, pulse the onions, garlic, celery and carrots until finely chopped.
In a Dutch oven (or large soup pot), heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion mixture with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the ground beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the broth and the red and white wines and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, bay leaves, thyme, oregano, 1 t. salt and 1/2 t. black pepper. Bring to a boil,then reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes. Check on it occasionally during the cooking time and add more broth or tomato sauce if a saucier consitency is desired.
Remove and discard the bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Serve the beef bolognese over any pasta and enjoy!
