Delicious Veal and Pork Bolognese Sauce

Delicious Veal and Pork Bolognese Sauce created by Barenakedchef

This sauce must be cooked for 2 hours or even more is even better! the first hour covered then the last uncovered. If possible prepare this sauce one day in advance and refrigerated, it will increase the flavor. This is a very hearty sauce, you can also add in a can or plum tomatoes, chopped and drained if desired.

    Made this tonight to rave reviews from DH and DD. DH said it's the best meat sauce he's ever had! This has a lot of depth of flavor and the time put into making it was definitely worth it. I followed the recipe exactly except that I only had diced canned tomatoes, not crushed, and I don't eat veal on principle, so used regular ground beef instead. Don't know if it was one of those changes, but after the initial 2 hours simmering, there was still a lot of liquid to boil off. I increased the heat for the last hour, stirring frequently, and cooked off about 2 inches of liquid from the pot. This isn't a complaint by any means, I'm sure the extra cooking time allowed the flavors to meld into something wonderful. Just an observation. Thanks for another winner, Kittencal! My whole family knows that when I say it's a Kittencal recipe they should expect greatness!

    Really enjoyed this bolognese sauce. I had 600g of pork and veal mince so slightly lessened the remaining ingredients and converted to grams and mls. I added chilli flakes instead of red pepper and omitted the cream. I served with casarecce siciliane pasta and warm crusty olive batard. Thanks for posting from Melbourne, Australia
