How to Make Bolognese Sauce

In this video, you'll see how to make homemade Bolognese sauce. It's a classic Italian meat sauce starring ground beef, plum tomatoes, and aromatic vegetables. The secret ingredients here are milk and a little freshly grated nutmeg. You'll simmer your tomato and meat sauce for a nice long time. We're talking 4 to 6 hours. Really, the longer the better. The flavors will concentrate and the meat will become unbelievably tender. Chef John dedicates this video to the 'Nonna' of Italian cooking in America, Marcella Hazan. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Bolognese Sauce. Enjoy it with your favorite cooked pasta, topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley.
