Neapolitan Meat Sauce - (Ragu Napoletano)

1/2 pound veal -- cut into chunks
1/2 pound beef chuck -- cut into chunks
1 onion -- finely chopped
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup red wine
2 cans peeled San Marzano tomatoes - (28 oz ea) -- with juices, passed through a food mill
1/2 pound sweet Italian sausages
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch hot chili flakes


In a large pasta pot or Dutch oven, combine the veal, beef, onion and oil over high heat and cook until meat is seared on all sides and meat juices have evaporated, 10 to 12 minutes.


Add the wine and cook, stirring constantly, until wine evaporates and meat is darker brown, about 5 minutes.


Stir in the tomatoes, sausage, salt and chili flakes. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 2 1/2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally and skimming fat as necessary.


Remove from heat and remove sausage from ragu, chop and return to ragu. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.


This recipe yields 4 cups, for 8 pasta servings.
