Easy Homemade Bolognese Sauce

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large heavy-based skillet over MED-HIGH heat. Add the ground beef and brown for 8-10 minutes, using a spoon to break it up as it cooks.

Step 1

Remove the browned beef and set aside.

Step 2

Drizzle the rest of the olive oil in the pan. Add the onions, garlic, carrots, and celery and sauté for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Return the ground beef to the pan, along with the tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, herbs, beef stock, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and let simmer for 1 hour. Stir the sauce occasionally and use your spoon to break up the whole tomatoes. If the sauce is too thick, pour in a little more water or stock.
