“Master Moderator’s Best Bolognaise Sauce in the World”

Category: Cooking,ThermomixRobert McGovern @ 11:12 am

I tried making this http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=6305.0 recipe last night

Ok… it’s about time I posted one of my specials!!!! This is seriously delicious!!

Servings: 6-8

Cook Time: 40 min.

Ingredients:

•   2 medium sized onions
•   3 garlic cloves
•   500g minced beef
•   I canned tomatoes (or 250g fresh tomatoes)
•   100g tomato paste
•   Small glass of red wine
•   1 teaspoon Dried Basil
•   20g Olive Oil
•   I teaspoon Dijon Mustard
•   1 teaspoon Dried Basil
•   3 teaspoon sugar

Instructions:
Place onions (halved) and whole peeled garlic cloves. Push on that TURBO button until finely chopped. Scrape down sides of bowl and add olive oil. Cook on 100ºC for 3 mins      Then add the canned or fresh tomatoes and hit the turbo button a couple of times.

Now add all of other ingredients. Separate the minced beef with your fingers, whilst placing in bowl. Give it a good mix around with spatula. Now cook for for 35 mins, 100ºC     Halfway through cooking time, give it a good stir… Let stand for a few mins before serving.

That’s it.. Easy but delicious!!

Serve with pasta (of course) and a nice rocket, cherry tomato and feta cheese salad (dressing made of olive oil and balsamic vinegar)

But it failed badly, there really wasn’t a sauce so to speak and it was more stodgy mince. I followed a suggestion of using Passiert (about 300g) rather than the Puree but I don’t think it helped.
