Classic Bolognese (CleverChef Pro)

This iconic dish is made quickly and easily in the Clever Chef Pro, breaking down the ingredients and releasing those wonderful flavours in a fraction of the time. Perfect for batch cooking and freezing for later in the week if you increase the quantities. We make enough here for at least 2 family meals.

Serve tossed with cooked tagliatelle, sprinkle with grated parmesan and shredded fresh basil.


2 tbsp olive oil

1kg minced beef

1 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 carrot, finely chopped

1 celery stick, finely chopped

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp tomato purée

1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes

75ml red wine

150ml beef stock

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Suitable for: CleverChef Pro 4.8LCleverChef Pro 5.7L

The Method

Select the SAUTE function and then the BEEF STEAK program, adjust time to 15 mins then press START add 1 tbsp oil and allow to heat for 1-2mins. Season the mince with salt and pepper then brown the mince in batches and set aside.

Add the rest of the oil followed by the onions, garlic, carrots, celery and stir regularly for ~5 minutes until they begin to soften.

Add the balsamic vinegar, tomato purée, red wine, stock, chopped tomatoes and mince and stir to combine, then press BACK if the program is still running.

Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the PRESSURE COOK function and then the CHILL BEEF program and press START.

When the program has finished, we recommend the SLOW RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.

Optional step: depending on how much liquid is in the pot you may wish to reduce in which case select the SAUTE function and then the BEEF STEAK program and press START. When this reaches the desired consistency press BACK to stop the cooking program.
