Mamma Mia

Now, this may seem like a bit of a bland recipe post, but I honestly think a good spaghetti bolognese recipe is a must. I have tried so many crappy bolognese dishes, but thanks to help from my lovely Mum and some trial and error, I think I've come up with the perfect recipe. 

You will need...500g beef minceChopped tomatoesTomato pureeOnionGarlic (/puree)Balsamic vinegarRed wineSugarBeef stockDijon mustard

mamma miaNow this is very simple, you know the score... fry your onions, garlic and mince in a little oil. You may want to drain off any excess oil once browned. Once browned add the magic ingredients... red wine (a good glug), balsamic vinegar (a little glug), chopped tomatoes, large teaspoon of mustard, squirt of tomato puree, teaspoon of sugar and a beef stock cube. Leave to simmer for about 20 minutes. Serve with spaghetti or pasta and a sprinkling of parmesan. mamma mia
To me, this is just the perfect bolognese. You could also add a little chopped bacon to give it an extra bit of oomph, or for Chilli Con Carne just add kidney beans and a generous sprinkling of chilli powder and paprika. Sometimes simple is best, no?
