Neapolitan ragù

Ragù Is not just a sauce, it is the perfect representation of the love and care that Italians have for food: it takes several hours to make it and it needs stirring regularly, but the result will pay everything off, I promise!

Ingredients for 8 people:

  • Beef ribs, 700g
  • Pork ribs, 350g
  • Pork sausage, 350g
  • White onion, 1
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Red wine half a glass
  • Tomato sauce 700g


  1. Peel and cut the onion
  2. Warm some oil in a pan and add the onion
  3. When the onion is clear turn the heat off
  4. Cut the beef and remove the fatty bits
  5. Cut the beef, the pork and the sausage in pieces and add them to the pan
  6. Turn the heat on and let the meat cook for 10 minutes at low temperature
  7. Add the wine and let it evaporate
  8. Add the tomato sauce
  9. Add 2 glasses of water
  10. Add salt and pepper
  11. Let everything cook for 5 hours at very low temperature
  12. If you want (this is not part of the traditional recipe but I love it) after 4 hours add some frozen peas, they give some colour and their sweetness matches well with these flavours
