Swipe to swipe! I was thrilled with the overall cast of #CampingHBO: warm, talented, smart like anything but when someone came to dinner I needed warm and cozy – @sara_fostersmarket bolognese This recipe is a must in my house, especially when it comes to feeding a crowd, in which case I tripled the recipe and it was perfect. Bonus: My house smelt fantastic! Tonight is the finale of this Wacko show and unfortunately it's time to say goodbye, but every time I let bolognese simmer on the stove, I'll contact @juliettelewis @ioneskyelee @sullivangrams @ brettgelman @janicza @itsreallychy @bridgeteverett @arturodelpuerto @durvancooneo reminds #DavidTennant: I love you all XX. Every day bolognese Ingredients: 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 onions, diced 2 carrots, grated 4 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped 2 kg bark rhack sea salt, freshly ground black pepper 2 teaspoons dried oregano 2 teaspoons dried marjoram 2 teaspoons dried basil 1 cup dry red wine 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 (28 ounces) cans crushed tomatoes 2 tablespoons tomato paste 2 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth 6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons freshly chopped oregano or marjoram. Instructions: 1.) Sara asks to dice and grate onions and carrots by hand. If you have little time (or are lazy) – I've found that using a food processor can achieve the same result. 2.) Heat oil in a large saucepan until it is hot and add onions. Reduce to medium and cook, stir until onions are boiled, about 5 minutes. Add carrots, stir until tender, 2-3 minutes longer. Add garlic and stir frequently for 1 minute. 3.) Add beef, break up and season with salt and pepper. Add dried herbs and stir until beef is cooked outside, but inside a little more pink, 4-5 minutes. 4.) Add wine and vinegar and cook to reduce some brown pieces from the bottom about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir to combine. 5.) Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer, partially cover and cook, stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens for about 1 hour. 6.) Remove from heat and stir in fresh herbs before serving. 7.) Yum.
