- 500g Our Cow beef mince
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 brown onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp brown sugar (to caramelise onions)
- 6 large & ripe tomatoes, quartered
- 3 sprigs thyme/rosemary or both
- Salt & pepper
- Paprika or chilli powder for an extra kick
- Brown sugar to taste, to contrast the acidity
Sauté onions on medium heat until starting to sweat & caramelise then add brown sugar
Toss in garlic and sauté a little longer before adding in your beef mince.
When the mince if halfway cooked, add the tomatoes and continue to mix.
Add extra spices and your desired herbs, cover with ovenproof lid and place in an 180 degree Celsius oven for 20 minutes.
You can continue to let it cook on the stove too if you’d like.
Cook your chosen pasta until al dente in lightly salted water.
Once your tomatoes are well cooked, take the pan out of the oven, stir and taste before adding salt, pepper and brown sugar.
Toss your cooked pasta into the sauce and serve.
*Trust your tastebuds and if you have any Parmesan, Grana Padano or similar types of cheese, it will add some depth of saltiness to the dish.
*You can also add veggies to the sauce, grated carrots & zucchini are very palatable in it.
