Herbed Beef Ragu Recipe
The ingredient list might seem a bit extensive but, trust us, it's worth it. Onions, carrots, celery, and garlic are sautéed prior to being added to the slow cooker. Next, you'll just pile in the rest of the ingredients and cook on LOW for 8 hours. The sauce will cook an additional hour with the lid off. Season with salt and pepper and you'll have dinner on the table in a flash! Serve with a hearty pasta like penne. We like topping this dish with Parmesan cheese and basil—but it's flavorful enough on its own if you prefer to keep things simple. Serve with a quick and easy salad and dinner rolls for a complete meal. Our Herbed Beef Ragu is a great option for entertaining. All you'll have to do is prepare the pasta—you can have everything else ready to go when guests arrive. Herbed Beef Ragu serves 6 to 8. If you have a smaller family, cook the full recipe and freeze half in a freezer zip-top bag. Pull it out of the freezer in the morning and reheat when you get home from work for a quick, home cooked meal.
