Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe

Typically bolognese is made with beef and/or pork. Moose meat however is terrific because of the taste and its low content of fat (lower than 3 %). I get it frozen from the supermarket and I really love it! If you find it, you should give it a try!

Traditionally spaghetti bolognese include onion, carrot and celery. I added onion but not carrot or celery for this one, but then I guess this recipe isn't very traditional anyways. I also use apple cider vinegar instead of the traditional red wine. 

Now here is the recipe with homemade bolognese sauce that is good for both tastebuds and body. So throw away that readymade bolognese jar and lets cook!

3-4 people
  • 500 g minced moose (or lean minced beef/pork)
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 whole onion
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 400 ml water or stock
  • 1 handful herbes de Provence (herbmix)
  • season with salt
  • season with pepper
  • 1 glug cooking oil to grease the pan
Optional toppings
  • grated cheese preferably parmesan
  • sprinkle of fresh oregano
  • 80-100 g spaghetti
Servings: people
  1. heat the pan to medium/high heat and grease it with a little cooking oil
  2. add onion and garlic and fry for a minute before adding the meat, fry until browned
  3. add tomato paste, soy sauce, vinegar, stock and seasoning
  4. let simmer for a while, the longer the more tender it will become
  5. if you, like me, don't mind it a bit gamey or just don't want to wait for hours (due to impatience/hunger) reduce the amount of liquid so that the bolognese won't be watery when you eat it
  6. serve with spaghetti and top with grated cheese and oregano (or fresh basil)
Recipe Notes

This is actually starting to become the most reoccurring meal in my diet. However I do want to mention that pasta isn't the most nutritious carb source out there, but since its a starchy carb it does a very good job of replenishing the muscle glycogen that you need for a good workout. This means that pasta works perfectly as long as it is part of a balanced diet with a mix of other starchy carbs as well as greens and veggies.
