Description

A hearty spaghetti meat sauce that rivals the best Italian restaurants.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Water
  • 2-½ pounds Ground Chuck
  • 1-½  Large Onions, Chopped
  • 1 can (29 Oz Size) Tomato Sauce
  • 1 can (6 Oz. Size) Tomato Paste
  • 2 teaspoons Black Pepper, Ground
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Oregano
  • 2  Bay Leaves

Preparation

1. In a Dutch oven, mix together all ingredients except the bay leaves until smooth. Do not brown the ground beef prior to mixing—this is what gives the sauce a fine, restaurant-quality texture.

2. Stirring frequently, cook over medium low heat until the meat is browned.

3. Place bay leaves on top. Cover and simmer on low heat for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

4. Remove bay leaves, skim fat from top and serve over your favorite pasta.

This sauce can be frozen in airtight containers for up to 6 months.

I previously made this sauce and just found leftovers in my freezer. It is absolutely delicious! It is so rich and flavorful. When I made it, I bought the beef from our local butcher, which is freshly ground. I have given this recipe to all my co-workers and everyone that made it loved it also! This is such a unique recipe. Thank you for sharing!
