DIRECTIONS

  • Brown beef in a skillet.
  • Put into a large stock pot with the tomato sauce, paste, and diced tomatoes.
  • Add most of the required amount of all the spices.
  • Let simmer on low, stirring enough to keep it from burning to the pan bottom, for an hour or so.
  • Taste a spoonful and add the rest of the spices to taste.
  • TIPS: When you add spices, mix well and simmer 1/2 hour before you taste and add more if necessary.
  • The thicker the metal of your stock pot, the less you have to stir.
  • Cover it to prevent splatters, but not airtight (I use a spoon to prop the edge of the lid to let vapor escape.).
  • The longer it simmers, the thicker it gets (yum).
  • The sauce is also very good without the beef.
