Italian Beef Ragu

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!  I think I could eat this every night forever it was that good.  A team on MKR this week made Piadinas which I have never had before but they appeared to just be your average flat breads.  They're not.  My only fault with this recipe was it needs to make more!  But the piadinas were mere carriers for the absolutely mouth watering beef ragu that I threw together. WOW, it was fabulous.  Both my kids gave this a 10/10 which is quite a rarity - I have trained them to be very food critical so even lack of leftovers can result in loss of points!!   I can't wait to hear how you guys go with this dish as well and hope you all love it as much as I did, either way I will be making it again and again and again and ......
