I admit it, I love spaghetti. It may be the meal I would choose if I could only choose one. It’s simple, filling, you can eat it cold, and you normally have leftovers which are even better the next day. I have to give Kevin credit for this recipe. I am not sure where he ran across it, but he has been making this sauce for me for quite some time. This is also our lasagna sauce. If you like spaghetti make this!
Here are the ingredients for the sauce.
First brown your meat and your chopped onion. In another pot get the sauce going.
I go ahead and measure the dry seasonings into a small bowl.
Once the meat is cooked, drain and add the dry seasonings.
Meanwhile, your sauce is simmering away. You will add the beef broth, sugar, soy, and Worcestershire sauce. Once that is all mixed in you can add the meat.
Let that simmer for about 20 minutes and that is it! Now, we will taste it and alter the flavors according to taste. We like heavy seasoning, so we may add more garlic, salt, whatever.
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (we love the jar kind)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Soy sauce
1 tablespoon parsley
2 lbs ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup beef broth
1 large can (29 oz) crushed tomatoes
1 regular can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
In a skillet, brown the ground beef and onions. Add the garlic and let the flavors cook together. While that is cooking get the sauce ready. In a large pot, heat the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Add the sugar, beef broth, soy, and Worcestershire sauce. Once the meat is cooked, drain, and add the dry seasonings. Stir to combine and add to the sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve over pasta. (When you serve watch out for the bay leaves. We leave them in but are careful not to serve them).
