Bolognese w/ Beef Liver

Ingredients

1 onion

3 cloves garlic

1 kg beef mince

1/2 kg beef or calfs liver*

3 bacon rashers

1 cup red wine

700g passata

400g tinned tomatoes

3 anchovies

2 tbs dried italian herbs or  1/4 cup of fresh oregano, parsley etc

1/4 cup black vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

* Buy organic, pasture fed liver – some people prefer to soak the liver in milk or vinegar so leave it to sit in milk for a few hours. I don’t find it necessary so I haven’t included this step.

Method

Remove the silver membrane from the liver and then finely chop. Heat a pan to fairly high heat and cook the liver quickly till it’s golden and caramelised. Set aside.
