DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large fry pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the onion and bacon and cook until the onion is golden and tender.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook a couple of minutes more.
  • Add the mince and cook, breaking up with a fork, until the meat has all changed colour.
  • Add the bell pepper and cook for a minute or two.
  • Now add the tomato paste and"cook it out" for another minute or two before adding the wine.
  • Allow the wine to reduce a little, before adding the remaining sauce ingredients.
  • Simmer until reduced and a deep rich red/ brown.
  • *You could call this "cooked" in 30 minutes, but I like to let it simmer about 2 hours, stirring regularly to make sure it's not catching.
  • Add a little more broth or water if it looks like doing so.
