Ingredients

How to make it

  • Chop up onion in junky bits
  • Heat up a saucepan and add olive oil. When hot add the dried Italian herbs and infuse the oil. Be careful not to burn the herbs.
  • Add onion as soon as herb flavours rise and reduce heat to medium. When onions are glazed add to slow cooker.
  • Add bit more olive oil to pan and heat up on high. When hot add mince and garlic.. Brown mince and add to slow cooker.
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste and red wine. Add a little salt and pepper. Stir together.
  • Cook on low for 5 hours.
  • Serve with al dente (not overcooked.. still bitey) cooked pasta of choice with grated parmesan and chopped parsley on top.
  • If you don't have a slow cooker you can do this on the stove top as well. The trick is never never let it boil. This will evaporate the alcohol and kill the flavour. Also you need to stir and add water occasionally if done on stove.
  • Enjoy!!

    I am on this website on the strength of this dish! I've used it for 'bole' for quite some time now and it has replaced every jar of ready made mush available! After experimenting a little I have to agree that your tips on wine and good quality ingredients are spot on.There is a distinct difference!Many thanks.

    I like the five cloves of garlic and the addition of the wine. This sounds quite good.
