Notes

TIPS

MEAT should have a lot of marbling like a high-quality steak. The more marbled it is, the sweeter sauce will be.DON'T USE A LEAN CUT for this sauce. The best part is the neck portion.

Add salt at the very beginning of cooking to extract the juices of meat.

If you don't have a crock pot, use an enameled cast-iron saucepan, cook the sauce no less than 3 hours , at the merest simmer. The more you cook the sauce, the better it will be.

EQUIPMENT
A crock pot/a cast-iron saucepan, a pasta machine ( optional).
