The Ultimate Meat Sauce.
This meat sauce is the divine. It's full of flavor and sure to satisfy.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 onion diced
- 2 tbsp dried basil
- 1 healthy pinch red pepper flakes
- salt & pepper to taste
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup red wine
- 2 large cans crushed tomatoes
- 1 large can tomato puree
- 1 Parmesan rind
- water (if needed for consistency)
In a stockpot, heat the olive oil.
Add in the beef and pork and brown.
Once cooked through, add in the dried basil, red pepper flakes, minced garlic, salt & pepper. Stir to combine and become fragrant.
Add in the red wine and cook down just a bit.
Add in the crushed tomatoes and the tomato puree and bring to a slow simmer. **throughout the cooking, you can check for consistency and add a little water at a time if needed.
Lastly, I like to add a Parmesan rind or two to the simmering sauce. It gives the sauce just an extra something and I love it. (totally optional)
I hope you love this sauce as much as I do….it’s not only easy, but it’s a family fave!
