Here’s a recipe that is so easy and only take 15m to prepare! Ingredients: 500gr of minced beef (for this recipe we had used red meat, but you can use the type of meat you prefer)*; Bacon – 3 slices, cut it in small pieces; 70 -100 ml tomato sauce (depending how much you like); 1 tablespoon of sugar; 1 tablespoon of vinegar; salt and pepper; dried oreganos; basil leafs.

How to cook:
In a pan fry the bacon pieces with no oil at all. The melted fat from the bacon it’s going to be the oily element of this recipe. Add the meat and cook until it’s brown. Add the tomato sauce, the sugar, the vinegar and the salt and pepper and the dried oreganos. Let it cook for 5 more minutes and it’s done.
At the same time, you make the meat you can cook the spaghetti. Now put in a plate the spaghetti and the meat on top and decorate with some basil leafs.

Advice: When you buy minced beef, make sure is grounded in front of you. Also, ask the butcher that the first 50gr of the minced beef it’s to put aside. That’s to make sure you’re not mixing different types of meat, that are still inside the ground machine. This way you know that you’re taking only the meat that you asked and that’s super important especially, if we’re going to use raw meat, like in tartare for example.
*If you are are Vegan or just want to try a new version of this recipe, just substitute the meat for granulated soy and the bacon for tempeh bacon ou coconut bacon.
