    made a ragú yesterday...very easy, and delicious.

    mince a small onion, carrot and celery stalk
    in a large flame-proof casserole, cook at med heat until soft in 3 tbsp of butter, but do not brown
    add in ~1# of ground beef, pork and veal (get the meatloaf mix)
    add in 1/2 tsp of salt
    cook until raw spots are gone, but don't brown
    add in one cup of milk, cook on med-low until whitish bits are gone
    add in one cup of red wine, cook on low for 10-15 min until alcohol is gone
    add in two cans (14.5 oz) of whole tomatoes, chopped, and their juices.

    cook on low heat, uncovered, for ~3 hours.


    i mixed it w/ rigatoni, and added some black pepper, grated parm, and chopped parsley.

    Sounds good and easy to put together. Funny, I made bolognese on Saturday - guess it was that kind of weekend. The method I used is from Paul Bertoli's "Cooking by Hand" and calls for browning the meat, successive deglazing with meat broth, a long simmer with more broth, and finally a dose of cream at the end. Amazing depth but definitely more work - I'll have to give this version a shot sometime.

    no need to ship, this is seriously one of the easiest things in the world to make. all you need is some time.

    Include about 4 oz of chicken livers next time. It's apparently the "magical" ingredient.
