Ingredient

  • For frying: extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 stick celery, diced
  • 100 gm smoky bacon, diced
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 600 gm ground Angus beef 
  • 600 gm diced Angus Chuck Steak or Beef  Rib Fingers  (Small dice)
  • 500 ml full-bodied red wine
  • 600 gm tinned whole Italian tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme & one sprig rosemary tied around a small piece of celery

Diced Chuck

 

Method

  • Heat the little olive oil in a thick bottomed sauce pan (that can go in the oven). Add the onion, garlic, carrot, celery, bacon and a little sea salt and cook for 15 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally – the vegetables should caramelized but not burnt. Add the Ground & Diced Beef and a little extra salt and cook for 5 minutes, stirring, to colour the mince well. Add the red wine and bring to the boil, then simmer until reduced by a quarter. Add the tomatoes and place the pan with a lid in the oven with the herbs and celery at 140 celsius for 3 hours and allow to braise slowly.
  • Remove the celery & herb stick, skim any fat from the surface and season if required

Herbs tied around celery

 

  • Serve with fresh Spaghetti or Tagliatelle topped with grated parmesan and  chopped parsley or make a delicious Lasagne
