DIRECTIONS

  • Place the onions (or shallots), celery, green pepper, red pepper, & garlic in a food processor and process until they are a smooth puree.
  • In a large stock pot, saute the diced bacon until it is browned. Drain off the fat, reserving 2 tablespoons. Return the two tablespoons of bacon fat to the bacon in the pot and saute the ground beef in the bacon fat until it has browned. *If you don't wish to use bacon you can use two tablespoons of olive oil here*.
  • Add the onion/celery/bell pepper/garlic puree to the beef and saute for 5 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add all other ingredients and stir to mix well.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook, covered over medium-low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the bay leaves and serve.
  • This is even better if you make it the day ahead. Refrigerate, the reheat and remove the bay leaves before serving.
