Today’s recipe is one of my Bolognese sauces and a staple in
My boys love it (without the shitakis, of course: keep in mind I still don’t do miracles)…
…and who doesn’t love a good bowl of pasta with a good amount of chunky meat sauce?
There would be riots in my house if I don’t cook this at least
twice a month.
Even myself: I’m not a carnivorous at all, and once in a while I found myself craving for
this meat sauce.
It’s perfect with pasta and to make meat lasagna
Sometimes I freeze it and then defrost it in those days in which I don’t want to cook (and yes, I do have those days too.)
I first published my recipe in Mamás Latinas
the pictures, I served it with vermicelli al dente
and Parmigiano Reggiano
. I hope you like it.
Bolognese Sauce with Shitaki Mushrooms | Ingredients for 8
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 pounds of ground beef (the leaner, the better)
1 cup of red or white wine
12 fresh basil leaves, or 2 teaspoons dried basil
1 sprig fresh thyme, or 1teaspoon of dried thyme
2 pounds of crushed tomatoes
1 cup of dried Shitaki mushrooms
Freshly ground black pepper
In a large deep skillet with a lid, put heat oil over medium
heat. Sauté the garlic and onion until wilted, about 5 minutes. Add the meat,
turn up the heat and cook until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Add the wine,
reduce the heat and cook until the liquid has reduced by more than half. Add the
herbs and the carrots and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes
and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. Add the mushrooms and cook
for 5 minutes until they are hydrated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
