Bolognese Meat Sauce




  1. Heat butter and oil in pan and add onion. Cook over moderate heat for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add pancetta or bacon and cook until the onion is translucent.
  3. Stir in carrot, celery and garlic and cook 3-4 minutes longer.
  4. Add beef and crumble it into the vegetables with a fork. Stir until meat loses its red color and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour in the wine, raise heat slightly and cook until the liquid evaporates, 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add the milk, and cook until it evaporates.
  7. Stir in the tomatoes with their juice and the herbs. Bring the sauce to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer, uncovered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
