Beef Bolognese

  • 1 kilo of grass fed beef mince
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tsp of your favourite combination of Italian herbs
  • 1 capsicum, any colour, diced
  • 3 carrots or so, diced or grated
  • a zucchini if you have one, grated
  • any other vegetable you want to hide, grated
  • 200ml red wine/white wine
  • 500ml beef/chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp vegetable stock concentrate
  • 1 can of tomato puree (or home made see recipe pizza sauce)
  • salt/pepper

If you feel like it, feel free to saute the mince, onion, garlic, and Italian herbs. Once sauteed place them into the slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredients.

Cook for 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Serve with pasta or quinoa.

Sometimes I just chuck everything into the slow cooker without sauteing and browning the meat first. It turns out fine and it is a real time saver if you are in a rush.
