Author Notes

This is a wonderful recipe based predominantly on an Italian Bolognese, however with the addition of flour and jam the sauce takes on a uniquely thick and rich flavour reminiscent of an English stew. The first recipe taught to me by my mother, this quick Bolognese-fusion recipe has been popular with my friends and family as long as I can remember! —Hazzer J
