Ingredients

2 strips bacon, finely chopped
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 large carrot, finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 lbs ground beef
salt and ground pepper
2 cups milk
pinch of nutmeg
1 cup dry white wine
2 (28-oz) cans crushed tomatoes in puree


In a Dutch oven, cook bacon, onions, celery, carrot, and garlic over medium heat, stirring occasionally until softened, about 8 minutes.


Add beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and breaking up meat with a spoon, until browned, 8 - 10 minutes.


Raise heat to high. Add milk and nutmeg; cook, stirring frequently, until milk has evaporated, 6 - 8 minutes. Add wine; cook, stirring frequently, until wine has evaporated, 6 - 8 minutes.


Stir tomatoes into beef mixture; simmer gently over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally and adding water as needed to prevent sauce from becoming too dray (1 1/2 to 2 cups total), until sauce is thick and beef is very tender, about 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper.
