Beef Bolognese with Linguine Recipe
- 3 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 3 medium onions, chopped
- 3 large carrots, chopped
- 6 celery ribs, chopped
- 1 can (12 ounces) tomato paste, divided
- 9 garlic cloves, sliced
- 3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
- 5 teaspoons kosher salt
- 3 teaspoons dried basil
- 3 teaspoons dried marjoram
- 1-1/2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1-1/2 cups dry red wine
- 3 cans (28 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1-1/2 cups beef stock
- 6 bay leaves
- 3 cups 2% milk
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Hot cooked linguine
- Additional grated Parmesan cheese, optional
- In a stockpot, cook half of the beef over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles. Remove beef with a slotted spoon; set aside. Pour off drippings. Repeat with remaining beef.
- In the same stockpot, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onions, carrots and celery; cook and stir until tender. Stir in 1 cup tomato paste; cook and stir 3 minutes longer. Add the garlic, seasonings and beef.
- Stir in wine. Bring to a boil; cook until almost evaporated. Add tomatoes, stock and bay leaves; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 hours or until desired consistency, stirring in milk halfway through cooking.
- Remove bay leaves. Stir in cheese and remaining tomato paste; heat through. Serve with linguine and, if desired, additional cheese. Yield: 18 servings (1 cup each).

Wonderful recipe full of flavor. This would be a 5 star if it added pork to the beef as well for more deeper flavor, but this is delish too the way it is. Thanks for sharing.
First bolognese I have tried, and it was delicious! The aroma in my kitchen all day drew our farm workers inside with mouth's watering! It is packed full of meat, which my husband loved. I used 2 pounds ground beef and 1 pound ground pork as we like the added taste of some pork in many dishes. I also used a white cooking wine instead of the red, and the flavor was really good. Lots of meat, and the veggies in the sauce make this a hearty sauce for your favorite pasta. Add a salad and dinner is served. Super!!
Great flavor! Definitely will keep this as a go to for a hearty flavorful meat sauce. It made such a large batch I froze 1/2 to have for another meal. It freezes well and tasted amazing.
I made this just as it says and my family loved it! great flavor.
Very good! Didn't use quite as much olive oil, maybe 1/4 c, only 2 tsp salt and that was plenty for us. Otherwise everything as written.
