Bolognese Nata's way

The kids love this, the husband loves this and the most important critic the mother in-law loves this. It is easy as ABC and packed with flavour.


500g Minced meat
25g Chorizo sausage
1 Large onion finely diced
3-4 large cloves garlic finely minced
1 beef stock cube
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 heaped tsp mixed dried herbs
1 tsp dried or fresh oregano 
Salt and pepper to season according to own taste
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 tsp tomato paste
2-3 tablespoons olive oil

In medium/large pot heat oil and slowly saute onions until nice and translucent.
Add Chorizo and fry until the oil begins to change colour.
Add minced beef and half the finely minced garlic, continue to fry mince until it start to brown adding a little water to prevent the mince from sticking to the pot.
Add all dry spices and continue to slowly fry the meat over a medium heat until the spices begin to release aromas.
Finely add tomatoes and tomato paste, season and allow to cook on a low heat a further 20minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the pot from sticking.
Serve with spaghetti or penne pasta and top off with freshly grated parmesan cheese
