A deliciously flavorsome Italian meat sauce that’s so easy to prepare in VitaClay! This authentic recipe from South Italy can be served with pasta or with a chunk of crusty bread – try it for your next family dinner!
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 lbs Italian sausage, fennel (or other types)
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1 medium onion, chopped finely
1 medium carrot, chopped into small bits
1 stalk celery, chopped finely
3 cups tomato sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to season
pinch peperoncino (chili flakes)
Using a medium pan, heat up olive oil, over medium-high heat. Once the oil is ready, sauté garlic and onion, until onions are slightly soft.
Add ground pork. Mix. Let the meat cook a bit (until most of the ground pork has changed color). Add fennel sausage. Mix. Add carrots and celery. Mix and let cook for a couple of minutes.
Transfer to your Clay pot. Add tomato sauce, salt, bay leaves, pepper and peperoncino. Mix to combine.
Set on “soup” to cook for 1.5 to 2 hours. Or on “slow” to cook for 1-1.5 hours (Note: don’t forget to stir it occasionally to make sure it does not stick in the bottom of the pot to burn)
