holy crap, it feels good to cook. i’ve barely been cooking these days, and when i do, its usually just for the basic need to eat. far from complicated, but cooking a nice bolognese is so satisfying cause you gotta put your L O V E in it. this was mighty tasty. esp on these freezing cold, april days.
there are many recipe variations for bolognese, and i made this off the top of my head, a combo of all the recipes i’ve read! just 1 thing missing… chicken livers! yes! chicken livers. they add a delicious richness.
mirepoix & garlic is softened in olive oil and seasoned, added minced beef and pork, cooked it off a bit. then threw in about a cup of milk to gently simmer. this is to tenderize the meat and make it as soft as possible. added a can of good pureed tomatoes, some tomato paste, bay leaves, and gently simmered for at least an hour. season.
