Veal, Beef & Pork Sugo
2 h 30 m
“This Italian tomato sauce recipe simmers for a long time, allowing some of the liquid to evaporate, concentrating the flavor. This easy recipe is perfect for meal prep—it makes a large batch, so serve some over pasta for dinner and freeze the rest for a quick meal in the future.”
1Combine mushrooms and water in a medium heatproof bowl. Set aside.
2Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add beef and veal; cook, breaking up the meat, until no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add celery, carrot, onion, garlic and parsley; cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes more.
3Strain the mushrooms, reserving the soaking liquid. Mince them and add to the pot along with the soaking liquid. Add tomatoes and their juices. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, partially cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 2 to 2½ hours.
4Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in butter and salt.
To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
