Description

This hearty meat sauce is comfort food in a bowl, with rich flavor from red wine and tomatoes. It's the perfect accompaniment to homemade Basic Pasta Dough cut into fettuccine, but of course, the sauce is excellent over store-bought fettuccine as well. Don’t be alarmed by the cooking time for the ragu. It’s a recipe you can get going and let simmer away on the stove while you do other things, making it perfect for a weekend dinner. It yields about 9 cups sauce. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.

    Directions

    1. Sprinkle chuck roast with salt and pepper for beef. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the beef and sear on all sides, turning as needed, about 10 minutes total. Remove beef from pan.
    2. Add onion, celery, and carrot to drippings in the pan. Sauté until vegetables are tender, 5-6 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring often, until tomato paste and vegetables “melt” together and the tomato paste begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
    3. Add wine to the pan and stir with a wooden spoon, scraping bottom of pan to release any browned bits. Stir in beef broth, crushed tomatoes, sugar, and salt and pepper for sauce. Return the beef to the pan.
