  • Summary

    Martha's traditional Bolognese sauce recipe calls for half ground pork and half ground beef. It's not as heavily based on tomatoes as typical Italian-American meat sauces, in fact the meat is cooked with white wine, milk, and chicken stock in addition to tomatoes.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3 ounces pancetta, cut into 1/4-inch pieces (2/3 cup)
    • 2/3 cup minced yellow onion (1/2 medium)
    • 2/3 cup minced carrot (2 medium)
    • 2/3 cup minced celery (1 rib)
    • 1 pound ground beef, such as chuck or sirloin
    • 1 pound ground pork
    • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon tomato paste
    • 1 cup dry white wine
    • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
    • 5 sprigs thyme, tied into a bundle with kitchen twine
    • 1 to 2 fresh bay leaves
    • 1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes, pureed (with juice) in a blender (or through a food mill)
    • 6 to 7 cups Basic Chicken Stock
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
