INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 bacon rashers, trimmed, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100g buttons mushrooms, finely chopped
1 small carrot, peeled, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, trimmed, finely chopped
500g beef mince
700g jar tomato passata
½ cup red wine
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons sugar
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

METHOD

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan on high. Sauté bacon, onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, until onion is tender. Mix in mushrooms, carrot and celery and sauté for 2-3 minutes more. Add mince and cook for 4-5 minutes, until browned, breaking up lumps with the back of a spoon.
