Radical Response Ragu,0,6802412.story

Are there any other words you would like to put in the President's mouth?

Radical Response Ragu

Una gran Ășltima cena for Jan Brewer and her constituents.  You'll like it, too!

¼ cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter
2 shallots, finely chopped
3 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled, finely chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground lamb
1/4 lb. finely chopped bacon
1/2 cup milk
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
1 cup dry white wine
2 cups reduced sodium beef broth
2 cups quick-cooking polenta, prepared as directed
Pecorino Romano cheese

Heat oil and butter in large saucepan.  Add onion, celery, carrots and garlic.  Cook and stir on medium-high heat 5 minutes or until vegetables are just tender. 

Add pork, lamb and bacon.  Cook 10 to 15 minutes stirring constantly.  Stir in milk and cook, stirring, 5 minutes or until almost dry.  

Add tomatoes, tomato paste, wine and broth; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer on low heat 1 hour 15 minutes or until reduced to a thick mixture.  

Serve ragu over polenta with grated Pecorino Romano cheese.

Add 1/2 to 1 tsp. salt if you prefer a saltier ragu.  I thought it was perfect as is, but my son thought it needed a little salt.
