Savory strudel with Ragù Bovì

Where does ragù come from?

It's impossible not to know it or have tasted it at least once in your life. Meat ragù is that thing that all housewives keep in the freezer, which they prepare from time to time and whoever - by mistake or not - passes by the kitchen, chooses to make the "shoe". Its history is truly curious and, although it is permanently a typical dish of the Bel Paese, its origins are French.

“Ragout” is the term of origin of the best-known meat sauce, its meaning is linked to meat and vegetable stews cooked over low heat for a long time. The French medieval period between the 12th and 14th centuries saw the appearance of the dish which consisted of stewing pieces of beef combined with spices over a low heat and in broth.

The Bourbon court ensured that the preparation first reached the borders and then the rapid expansion into the Italian territories. 1773 sees the first written sign of a similar dish, where the tomato still does not appear, thanks to Vincenzo Corrado nor "Il cuoco galante" where he describes a similar dish with veal, sweetbreads, prawns or eggs. Then comes Italian inspiration and from there, it is a crescendo of new ideas, recipes and traditions.

The recipe for strudel with ragù

Easy to make, curious to bring to the table, extravagant just enough. The ragù is the main ingredient but we can have fun and add ingredients as we like to really give a personal touch. If we then decide to change the original shape of the strudel, we can use a round pan and create a similar savory meat pie.

Basic ingredients, for a superlative result!

  • 230 g of puff pastry
  • 200 g of smoked provola or taleggio DOP
  • 1 jar of Ragù Bovì
  • 1 egg
  • nutmeg, salt and extra virgin olive oil to taste

Strudel or ragù cake procedure

The first step is to heat the Bovì ragù in a saucepan, so as to revive the flavour.

Roll out the puff pastry on baking paper, fill it with the Bovì ragù and the provola or taleggio cheese (or a mix) cut into coarse cubes.

Roll up the preparation, taking care to carefully seal the edges. Or we create the typical round shape of a pie filled with meat.

Brush the surface with a beaten egg and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes. The dish is ready and delicious!

Easy, maybe very easy

The proposed savory strudel recipe aims to enhance the flavors of tradition by combining two apparently opposite ingredients. On the one hand the Ragù Bovì which traditionally goes perfectly with pasta, on the other the strudel which includes apples and jam, rarely savory flavours.

Yet it is possible, and if your imagination allows it, you must dare just enough to amaze everyone, guests and diners. The idea of ​​combining two very opposite preparations was born from the desire to combine a salty and poor flavor with another rich in nuances thanks to the spices and the traditional workmanship of those who produce it.
