its my way, or the highway, baby!

I made spaghetti bologna yesterday for lunch and made the HUGE mistake of telling my chef-friend Diniy who quickly told me that the way I did it was "tak best tak best!" He then took the liberty to give me his recipe. Apparently its good enough to give you orgasms ;) This is a Ragu sauce people. So, Prep time MAY TAKE 10 minutes, but cooking it will take your entire life. heheheheh.

Prep time: 10 minutes (according to Diniy who can chop super fast so jangan percaya)
Cooking time: 2 hours at least
Serves: 5 to 6


360 grams finely chopped onions
180grams finely chopped celery
180 grams finely chopped carrots
1 finely slice of whole garlic clove
453 grams of minced lean beef.
beef bacon 130grams finely chopped

400 grams of canned or peeled tomatoes and 200 grams of tomato paste
500 fresh tomato puree and 200 grams tomato paste

400 grams of beef stock (apparently I’m supposed to make my own...tsk)
250 ml of milk

1.       Firstly, heat up the pan. Once heated, add oil, then add butter
2.       Then add the onion, celery and carrots. Sweat it (which is cooking but you don’t burn it...right Diniy?)
3.        Add the garlic. Before it starts to brown, add the beef and the chopped beef bacon
4.        Stir constantly till the beef is brown (about 20 minutes)
5.       Add in tomato paste and stir constantly for about 5 minutes.
6.       Add the milk and let it simmer. Stir constantly till the milk is absorbed
7.       Add in the tomatoes—tomato puree + canned tomatoes/peeled tomatoes
8.        Bring to gentle simmer, and cook for about...2 HOURS! (!!!!!!!!) Stir occasionally.

Okay, phew, that's it :) happy trying!!!

It's 20 minutes prep time or less but if you make your own beef stock, HOURS. Hahahaha!
