"Stupendously delicious!" declares my boyfriend! I made only a few changes and think they changed the recipe from 4 to 5 stars. First, I fried the bacon, removed it from the pan and reserved the grease in the pan. Second, I fried the onions, carrots, and celery, with one extra stalk of celery in the bacon fat over medium-high heat until the vegetables softened, about 7 or 8 minutes. I removed the veggies and set them aside. Third, I fried the meat and as it browned, I added the garlic. Fourth, I used fresh herbs instead of dried, and tripled the amount. Fifth, I added all ingredients together in an oven-safe pan and cooked it for two hours on 250 F in a convection oven. This cooking process allows the amino acids and sugars to combine into some amazing flavors and aromas. It also results in a little dehydration, which makes the sauce a little drier/thicker and much richer. Absolutely wonderful!
