This recipe is one that does not have an exact amount of ingredients. It is done by how much of the different ingredients you like. The first step is to add onions, garlic, carrots, celery, olive oil and rosemary to a big pot and until they are all a little brown. After this add meat. Once the meat is browned add 1-2 bouillon cubes. Once some of the grease has dried up add about a cup or so of white wine. Once this has dried up add 1-2 cans of tomato sauce and a little bit of water. Cover and let simmer for and hour to an hour and a half.
