1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, diced
3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon red chili flakes
½ cup red wine
½ cup milk
2 teaspoons fresh basil, chopped (I used 2 basil cubes by Dorot.)
In a heavy pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add onions and sauté until soft about 5 to 7 minutes.
Next, add in garlic and sauté until fragrant.
Add ground beef to onions and garlic. Cook until meat is no longer pink, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and red chili flakes.
Stir in red wine and milk.
Cover and simmer on low for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
Stir in basil about 10 minutes before end of cooking time.
Serves 6 to 8.
