Three Meat Bolognese Sauce

While I realize that this won’t be your traditional Bolognese sauce I wanted to share my recipe for my three meat tomato sauce after a bunch of friends commented on it. All of the measurements and timings are approximations and you should experiment with it accordingly.

Recipe (Serves approximately 8):

  • 500g of lean ground beef
  • 250g of ground pork
  • 250g of venison
  • 1 can of Tomato sauce (680ml, 22 fl. oz.)
  • 2 cans of Tomato paste (156ml, 5.5 fl. oz.)
  • water (approximately 340ml)
  • 1 large green pepper (diced)
  • 1 medium white onion (diced)
  • pinch of rosemary
  • 2 tbsp italian mix
  • 1 tsp of oregano
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • lots of salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Brown the meat.
  2. Dice vegetables as the meat is browning
  3. Put onions in with meat
  4. Add sauce, paste, water, garlic and spices into the pot. Simmer for 10 minutes
  5. Add green peppers into the pot.
  6. Simmer for 45 minutes (or more), stirring occasionally

I’ve found this recipe really improves canned tomato sauce and while it isn’t as good as creating a sauce from scratch it still tastes great. Simmering it for a long period of time allows for all the spices to meld with the sauce and meat. This sauce goes well over your favourite pasta or on a nice toasted baguette.
