Heat a heavy saucepan with the olive oil. Add the ground beef and pork. Saute on medium high heat while breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon and brown for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the thyme, onion, celery, carrot and garlic. Add a teaspoon of salt. Saute on medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook for a minute. Add the red wine and bring to a boil and add the tomato sauce and milk. Bring to a boil and simmer with lid on for an hour. Take lid off and cook for another 20 minutes.
