DIRECTIONS

  • Gently melt the butter & oil in a large pan which can be covered.
  • Add chopped carrot, onion, celery, bacon & bay leaves, gently cook until golden.
  • Add minced steak & garlic, season well with salt & pepper, cook until meat is no longer pink.
  • Add wine,cook until liquid reduces a little, add mushrooms thyme& oregano.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
