Mix together uncooked beef, tomatoes with juice and remaining ingredients (except salt and pepper) in a large stockpot.
Mash with a potato masher until texture is very smooth.
Place over med-low heat.
Simmer for about 2-3 hours, until beef is cooked through. **Mine was done in under two hours. May need to add water if cooking entire time, check and stir every 30 minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
To serve--steamed hot dog on bun, slathered w/ Michigan sauce.
