Kobe Beef Ragu

Makes 4 Servings

This ragu pasta sauce may or may not be 100% authentic, we came up with it while playing around in the kitchen, but the results are undeniably tasty. It’s easy, beefy, tomato-y, herby, and very satisfying.

We made this version using ground kobe beef, but you could easily substitute ground grass-fed beef, ground bison or even ground kangaroo.



INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup chopped Onions
  • 1/4 cup minced Carrot
  • 1/4 cup minced Celery
  • 1lb Ground Kobe Beef
  • 1/2 cup White Wine
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel Seed
  • 3/4 cup Beef Stock
  • One 6oz can of Tomato Paste
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Generous cracking of Pepper.
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 Pinch of Dried Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Basil, chiffonade (thinly sliced)
