Ingredients

  • 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

Method

Step 1
Sauté onions on medium heat until starting to sweat & caramelise then add brown sugar

Step 2
Toss in garlic and sauté a little longer before adding in your beef mince.

Step 3
When the mince if halfway cooked, add the tomatoes and continue to mix.

Step 4
Add extra spices and your desired herbs, cover with ovenproof lid and place in an 180 degree Celsius oven for 20 minutes.

Step 5
You can continue to let it cook on the stove too if you’d like.

Step 6
Cook your chosen pasta until al dente in lightly salted water.

Step 7
Once your tomatoes are well cooked, take the pan out of the oven, stir and taste before adding salt, pepper and brown sugar.

Step 8
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.
