Hustle Bolognese

"This Hustle Bolognese is a surefire home run for friends and family. A deep, meaty texture fused with a light, well-rounded Red Lager flavor makes this heavy-hitting meat sauce a walk-off." - Chef Christian Gill

Hustle Bolognese


  • 1 can of Rhinegeist Hustle
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 medium onions, medium diced
  • 4 celery stalks, small diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 cup of olive oil
  • 1 pound of thick cut bacon sliced into small chunks
  • 1 pound ground beef (chuck)
  • 1 pound ground italian sausage
  • 4oz tomato paste
  • 1 16oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of saltless Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup green onion, diced
  • 2 cups shredded Romano cheese
  • Your favorite pasta!


  • In a medium or large stock pot, cook bacon over medium high heat until fat is rendered.
  • Once bacon is curling at the tips add celery, garlic, and onions. Sautée for 3-5 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add beef, sausage and tomato paste.
  • Brown proteins and then reduce heat to medium.
  • As the pot begins to boil, add crushed tomatoes and Italian seasonings.
  • Add Hustle.

  • Stirring frequently, bring sauce back to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer covered for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • If necessary, add Hustle to keep sauce from sticking if mixture thickens too much.
  • After 35 minutes, add salt and pepper to taste. Stir and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Serve hot over your favorite pasta (that you've already cooked!). Garnish with green onion and Romano cheese.
  • When you run out, make another batch and freeze it!
