Beef Bolognese - My Bizzy Kitchen

Beef Bolognese – My Bizzy Kitchen


There is something so comforting about chopping veggies on a Sunday afternoon to make beef bolognese.

Because I used Butcher Box ground beef (80/20) it is high quality and has such a richness flavor, you don’t need to use much, there is only 8 ounces of beef for 10 half cup servings.

This sauce is so rich and delicious. Don’t be afraid to use 6 ounces of tomato paste because it makes the sauce taste as if it’s been simmering all day.

It’s also a great way to use up veggies at the end of the week that didn’t get eaten. Adding mushrooms also helps boost the beefy flavor.

Sundried tomatoes also add a depth of flavor too. Just be sure to buy them stored in water, not oil, so they are zero points on all plans.

If you don’t care for beef, I have a chicken bolognese sauce here – that is delicious too! If you are vegan or vegetarian, I also have a lentil bolognese that is delicious and ready in about 30 minutes.

Butcher Box has a special going on until the end of the month.  For new customers, you will get two pounds of grass fed, grass finished beef in every box – FOR LIFE!  It doesn’t matter if you buy a box once a month or once a year, you’ll always get the free beef in each box.  You can check it out here.
