Total Time:
3 hr 15 min
Prep:
45 min
Cook:
2 hr 30 min

Yield:
4 cups, for 8 pasta servings

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound veal, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 pound beef chuck, cut into chunks
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans peeled San Marzano tomatoes and juices, passed through a food mill
  • 1/2 pound sweet Italian sausages
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch hot chile flakes
Directions

In a large pasta pot or Dutch oven, combine the veal, beef, onion and oil over high heat and cook until meat is seared on all sides and meat juices have evaporated, 10 to 12 minutes.

Add the wine and cook, stirring constantly, until wine evaporates and meat is darker brown, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the tomatoes, sausages, salt, and chile flakes. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 2 1/2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally and skimming fat as necessary.

Remove from heat and remove meat from ragu. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
