Description

Few things are as welcoming as a slow-cooked gravy or ragù. Thankfully, this vin santo-infused version has all the makings of a great meal, one where celery, onions and carrots are sautéed until tender; sausage is browned and crumbled; and reconstituted, dried porcini lend nuance before it's simmered ajar on the stove-top for about 2-1/2 hours. Fresh basil is then added at the end to preserve its brightness and unmistakable, licorice-y flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 onions
  • 1 celery ribs
  • 1 carrots
  • 500 grams ground meat (mixed beef, veal, pork)
  • 2 sausages (crumbled)
  • 400 grams tomato purée
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 slices dried porcini mushrooms (soaked in warm water)
  • 1 cup vin santo (may substitute a sweet dessert wine)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • basil
  • salt (as needed)

Directions

  1. Prepare the onion, carrot, and celery and chop them finely.
  2. Place the oil in a terracotta saucepan and add the chopped vegetables.
  3. Cook for a few minutes on medium heat. The vegetables must not brown.
  4. Add the ground meat, the crumbled sausage, and the mushrooms, chopped finely.
  5. Saute on medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon.
  6. As soon as the liquid from the meat has been absorbed, add the Vin Santo and allow it to evaporate completely on medium/high heat, while stirring continuously.
  7. Add the tomato puree and the water, season with salt, and stir well.
  8. Place the saucepan on the small burner with the heat diffuser.
  9. Cover with a lid leaving it slightly ajar and simmer for approximately 2–2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  10. When the ragu is thick, turn off the heat and add a few basil leaves.
