Chunky Meat Sauce with Red Wine Vinegar

My mom gave me a bottle of red wine vinegar so I decided to make some pasta sauce with it! The sauce was extremely chunky with lots of tomato slices and ground meat, and the flavor was packed with herbs and had a nice acidic kick from the red wine vinegar. If you want it Pinoy-style sweet, feel free to add more sugar but I’ve always preferred less sugar (if none at all) in my red sauce. G was extremely happy with this and had around 3 servings of the meatsauce!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 kilo ground beef (the leaner the better, so the sauce doesn’t get too greasy)
  • 6 small native tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 12 cloves of garlic, finely chopped (yup we like it garlicky!)
  • 200g tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Herbs: I used Rosemary, Thyme, Basil and Parsley
  • Oil
  • Boiled pasta

Procedure

  1. Sauté onions and garlic in oil a large saucepan until onions are slightly translucent.
  2. Add the ground beef to the onions and garlic and stir until meat turns brown.
  3. Add the red wine vinegar, tomato sauce and tomatoes and stir.
  4. Add the herbs, and the salt and pepper.
  5. Stir until the sauce is nice and thick and the meat is throroughly cooked.
  6. Pour over boiled pasta and enjoy!

Lately my mom has been making these outrageous “ice cream cakes” mainly by baking a thin brownie base, spreading slightly melted ice cream, then freezing the whole thing before serving. At our family reunion today, she made this vanilla peanut butter swirl with peanut butter Kit Kat ice cream cake which was oh-so-indulgent!

I was down with a terrible case of flu the past week that when the weekend rolled in, I had a very strong craving for…ice cream! So that’s exactly what I had - a classic Pinoy combination of mango ice cream and ube (purple yam) that completely hit the spot!

G and I were extremely full after a day of pigging out, but we just had to buy some cupcakes to go from Larcy’s. Obviously, G got the chocolate flavored ones (Oreo Kit Kat and Chocolate Fudge Brownie) while I got the Bananutella and Pineapple Carrot.¬†

So far, we’ve tried the Chocolate Fudge Brownie, which was rich and chewy, and the Pineapple Carrot, which was very moist and slightly sweet, with bits of juicy pineapple too! I was a little disappointed with the icing though, because I was expecting cream cheese icing rather than a buttercream icing.

Tomorrow we’ll try the Oreo Kit Kat and the Bananutella!
