2lbsground beef see notes
27ozdiced tomatoes or tomato sauce or a mix of bothone big can or 2 small
1-2beef soup bones
1cupbeef bone broth
Chop onion, garlic, celery, and carrot into small pieces and add to the slow cooker.
Add ground beef, diced tomatoes or tomato sauce, sea salt, pepper, bay leaves, beef soup bones, and broth and give it a stir breaking up the ground beef a little. (You can add other spices & herbs, too at this point if you like)
Put on the lid and set the slow cooker to 8 hours on low.
Once the 8-hour cooking time is over, give everything a good stir and finish breaking apart the beef.
Serve over pasta or in a lasagna. What I like to do is cook some linguini, spiralize some zucchini and then mix both up so I have more vegetables in my meal. Enjoy!
the more fat, the more tender the meat but also the more the calories. Use fatty, lean or extra lean depending on your preference. The nutritional info is for a bolognese made with lean ground beef.
