Serving Suggestions

  • 500g of lean steak mince
  • 130g of pancetta cubes
  • 1 tin of peeled plum tomatoes
  • Tomato puree (half a tube)
  • 4 cloves of garlic crushed or chopped
  • 1 medium white onion chopped
  • Olive oil (1 tbsp)

  • 1 beef stock cube

  • Side rocket salad

Method

  • STEP 1
    Heat a large frying pan or wok with a tbsp of olive oil and add the finely chopped onions then cook until soft. Add the mince and pancetta and cook until the mince is brown. This will take around 10 minutes in total.
  • STEP 2
    Add the tinned tomatoes and stir thoroughly. Break the stock cube in your fingers and add these into the mix. Then, add the garlic to the pan along with the herbs, pepper, balsamic vinegar and red wine then stir thoroughly. Cook for 10 minutes and and stir occasionally.
  • STEP 3
    Squeeze half the tube of tomato puree into the pan and once again stir thoroughly. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes and stir occasionally until you have a deep red, thick bolognese.
  • STEP 4
    For the spaghetti, fill a pan 3 quarters full of water and add a tsp of salt. Once the water is boiling, add 3oz of spaghetti per person and cook for 10 minutes.
  • STEP 5
    Once everything is cooked, drain the spaghetti and divide between plates. Then, dish out the Bolognese and serve with some of the recommended serving options or without depending on preference. I recommend fresh grated parmesan!
