    1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, carrot and celery in the hot oil until the tender and the onion has started to brown around the edges, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef and pork; continue cooking and stirring until the meat is brown and crumbled, about 5 minutes. Pour in the wine, bring to the boil and cook until the wine has nearly evaporated. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 2 hours until the meat is very tender. Use a little water as needed if the sauce begins to look too dry.
