In a large sauce pot, brown the chopped beef and (veal or lamb), drain fat and reserve meat for later. In the same pot, sauté onion and garlic in the olive oil & butter until the onions are translucent. Deglaze the pan with wine and reduce by half. Puree the whole tomatoes and add them to the pot along with the sliced carrots and reserved meat. Simmer for about 1½ hours.
