This Spaghetti Bolognese recipe is great as a quick midweek dinner or suitable for a special occasion. It is rich and indulgent with balanced multidimensional flavors. We are going to transform a package of ground beef into something magical called bolognese sauce. This Italian inspired sauce is hearty and robust with exuberant and rich flavors of meat. It is delicious, smooth, melt in your mouth texture sauce that is to die for and the best part that it cooks all in quick 30 minutes.
The three secret ingredients that help the sauce to achieve the depth and complexity of flavors without having to spend hours at the hot stove are sugar, beef bouillon cubes, and Worcestershire sauce.
Sugar balances the acidity and sourness of the tomatoes out, while the Worcestershire sauce adds a little extra zing to the bolognese. Beef bouillon cubes compensate for the extra flavor since this is a quick 30 minute bolognese and there is no building up flavors using the aromatic soffrito.
I also like to boil my pasta and toss it together with my the sauce, rather then topping it with the sauce. This makes the Bolognese sauce emulsify, so it thickens, becomes glossy and clings to the spaghetti. You will never end up with watery sauce at the bottom of the bowl again. Thats is how Italian chefs make it in the restaurants.
The sauce is emitting the most taunting smell simmering away on the stove, the hardest part is to wait for it to be ready.
