Directions To make the sauce: Cook the bacon and herbs in a large skillet over med-high heat until the bacon is soft (about 4 minutes). Add the onions and continue to cook until they aregolden brown. Add the chuck; stir occasionally until browned. Add wine, bring sauce to a simmer and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes. Transfer the mixture to a clow cooker and add the remaining ingredients. Set at high and allow to slow-cook for 5 to 6 hours. Serve hot over pasta. YUM!
Ingredients CRUST: 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 2 Tbsp sugar 1/8 tsp salt 6 Tbsp chilled butter, cut into small pieces 1/3 cup ice water Cooking spray
FILLING: 1/3 cup orange juice 2 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup orange marmalade 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts, toasted 1 Tbsp grated orange rind 1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
Preparation Preheat oven to 425°.
To prepare crust, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Sprinkle surface with ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time; toss with a fork until moist and crumbly (do not form a ball). Gently press mixture into a 4-inch circle on plastic wrap. Cover and chill for 15 minutes.
Slightly overlap 2 lengths of plastic wrap on slightly damp surface. Unwrap and place chilled dough on plastic wrap. Cover dough with 2 additional lengths of overlapping plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 14-inch circle. Place dough in freezer 5 minutes or until plastic wrap can be easily removed.
Remove plastic wrap; fit dough into a 10-inch round removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray. Fold edges under or flute decoratively.
To prepare filling, combine juice and cornstarch in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add remaining ingredients; stir well. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
Bake at 425° for 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° (do not remove tart from oven); bake an additional 35 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack.
