Remarkable. Simply remarkable. I used 1 pound of venison sirloin and 1 pound of venison stew meat ground twice with the coarse grinding disc that comes with the Kitchen Aid sausage grinder. I did brown the venison in bacon fat and reserved the fat/jous from browning the meat to add with the tomatoes. Added 1 Tbs red wine vinegar to the wine along with 4 tbs homemade tomato paste. Lush is the right word, as is unctuous. Used Bully Hill Love My Goat Red for cooking and drinking. And I let the whole thing simmer on low for four hours in a dutch oven. I could not bemore impressed. I've got a bunch of moose meat in the freezer. Bullwinkle Bolognese will be next. Thanks for a great recipe!
