What really is the "Authentic" version of a Bolognese Sauce?
Does it have minced celery & carrots & bacon (pancetta)?
Does it have milk, beef stock, or wine in it?
Does it have herbs like bay, oregeno, basil, etc. or is it simple no herbs/spices except s&p?
Is it ground beef, pork or a mix?
Canned Tomatoes (Marzano?), or Sauce, or fresh tomatoes only?
What about tomato paste?
I am making my version right now, which is: Home Canned plum tomatoes, onion, garlic, ground beef, red wine, oregeno, chili peppers, grated carrot, and tomato paste cooked for 3/4 ish hours (depending on how hungry we are).
But this time decided to add milk & stock.... as one "authentic" recipe requested.
What do you think?
