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!

Whether it’s mother’s day or not, my mom always insists on making the desserts. Our family usually eats at home to avoid the crazy crowds eating out on this day, and the food is much more delicious and we are much more relaxed. For dessert this year, my mom made chocolate cakes topped with strawberries and mango chiffon cake.
Happy mother’s day to all moms out there! :)

Made spicy bunny noodles for dinner tonight. Used one pack of instant Spicy Korean vegetable ramen and cooked it with sauteed garlic and onion in sesame oil, two types of fish cake (including the bunny shaped ones), broccoli, and a chicken broth cube.
The end result was delicious but we found the bunny-shaped fish cakes a bit too sweet for our taste. I would think that this would be a big hit with kids though!
