As I was watching this and the recommendation to cook down the sauce until the meat was tender, a light went on. Ground chuck needs to cook a long time for all that connective tissue to break down. Tough ground beef has been an annoyance to me in sauces and now I know how to beat that. Thanks Chef John!
