Thought I’d experiment again with the leftover Meantime Winter Time from this afternoon’s cupcakes so chucked it into some Bolognese. Since the Day Nurse has now kicked in (did I mention the cold??), I can confirm it was yum.
Method
Ingredients
– Heat pan with some olive oil and fry the pancetta, then adding the onion, sauté until the onion becomes transparent
– Add ground minced beef, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce, then fry until beef is lightly browned, and then add the lager and cooked until reduced by about half
– Then add rest of the ingredients, mash the tomatoes in the pan, and allow sauce/gravy to simmer on low heat for 45mins
– While gravy is simmering, start boiling water and cook the pasta according to instructions.
– When pasta is cooked, add into the ragu sauce and mix well. Serve immediately.

1tbsp olive oil
– 1 large onion, chopped
– 1tbsp pancetta, cubed
– 1lb minced beef
– 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
– Tin of tomatoes
– few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
– some dried oregano
– some red chilli powder
– black pepper, to taste
– 3/4 bottle of dark ale
– Pasta of your choice (we used ‘twisty’ pasta cause it’s Jorge’s favourite)
