Bolognese Meat Sauce


1/3 Cup Olive Oil

2 Ounces Salt Pork

1 Clove Finely Chopped Garlic

½ Cup Chopped Onion

1 Cup Chopped Carrot

1 Cup Chopped Celery

1 Pound Ground Sirloin

½ Cup White Wine

½ Cup Light Cream

1 (28 Ounce) Can Peeled Crushed Tomatoes

1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste

1 Cup Peas

2 Ounces Butter

½ Teaspoon Sea Salt

½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

½ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

In a medium size saucepan, heat the diced salt pork in the oil until the pork is light brown in color. Remove the salt pork and add the finely chopped garlic to the oil. Brown to taste. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the carrot and celery and cook until they are softened and begin to change color. Add the ground sirloin. Stir and cook until the sirloin turns brown in color. Pour in the wine and increase the heat to get a boiling action while stirring. Pour in the light cream and bring to a boil for 3 minutes. Dilute the tomato paste in the peeled crushed tomatoes and add to the saucepan. Add the peas to the saucepan and color. Allow to simmer over a low heat for 55 minutes. Add the butter, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir well and allow to cook at a simmer for another 15 minutes. Serves 4
