Enjoy an easy dinner or a quick lunch with this recipe for Beef Bolognese and Tomato Salsa Subs
15 ml olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 kg lean beef mince
a handful of fresh thyme leaves
salt and pepper to season
1 can chopped and peeled tomatoes
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 large, ripe tomato – finely chopped
a handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
4 brown rolls/buns of your choice
1 cup grated cheddar
1 cup grated mozzarella
First off, in a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and saute the onion and garlic until translucent.
Add the mince and brown.
Add the herbs, seasoning and tin of tomatoes.
Allow to simmer for 30 – 40 minutes on medium heat, checking in every few minutes not to burn.
Combine the chopped red onion, tomato and parsley in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
Cut a hole from the top part of the bun to make a little boat, that will hold the ingredients.
Scoop spoonfuls of bolognese in the hollowed bread, followed by tomato and red onion salsa and finished off with cheese. Freeze the leftover bolognese for subs next week!
Grill in the oven until the cheese has melted and start to bubble. Serve hot.
