Recipe Ingredients for Bolognese Sauce

1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 tablespoons minced carrot
2 tablespoons minced celery
3/4 pound ground beef 90%
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup skim milk
1 cup dry white wine
28 ounce whole tomatoes , packed in juice, chopped fine, with juice reserved

Recipe Directions for Bolognese Sauce

  1. Heat butter in large, heavy-bottomed Dutch oven over medium heat; add onion, carrot, and celery and sautè until softened but not browned, about 6 minutes. Add ground meat and 1/2 teaspoon salt; crumble meat with edge of wooden spoon to break apart into tiny pieces. Cook, continuing to crumble meat, just until it loses its raw color but has not yet browned, about 3 minutes.

  2. Add skim milk and bring to simmer; continue to simmer until milk evaporates and only clear fat remains, 10 to 15 minutes. Add wine and bring to simmer; continue to simmer until wine evaporates, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Add tomatoes and their juice and bring to simmer; reduce heat to low so that sauce continues to simmer just barely, with an occasional bubble or two at the surface, until liquid has evaporated, about 3 hours (if lowest burner setting is too high to allow such a low simmer, use a flame tamer or a foil ring to elevate pan). Adjust seasonings with extra salt to taste and serve over cooked fettuccine.

  3. (Sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for several days or frozen for several months. Warm over low heat before serving.)
