Bowl of spaghetti with Bolognese sauce
The Ingredient Upgrade That Will Change Your Bolognese
There’s a simple way to upgrade your Bolognese sauce to make it silkier and richer with more meaty flavor. Instead of using only ground meat, try adding chicken liver.
Good quality chicken liver has a creamy texture with an earthy, savory, and slightly gamey flavor that adds serious dimension to your Bolognese sauce.
Liver also adds a rich and silky texture to the sauce. Sauté the livers before they go into the sauce to caramelize them, but do not overcook them, which makes them grainy.
When the livers are added to the sauce, they will disappear among the other meat, leaving only richness behind. You should use the best quality livers, so check with your butcher.
