    Directions:

    1. 1
      1. Start with the following in a pot.
    2. 2
      1 pound of sweet Italian sausage.
    3. 3
      1 pound of ground beef.
    4. 4
      1/2 cup of chopped onions.
    5. 5
      2 cloves of garlic chopped.
    6. 6
      Brown the ground beef, Italian sausage, onions and garlic in a pot until they start to look. It takes about 6 to 9 minutes to brown the meat. I like to use a Dutch oven to cook this portion of the recipe. I use a medium low temperature to brown the meat. It is optional to remove the grease from the meat once it is finished browning, your choice.
