DIRECTIONS

  • Add olive oil to a large pot over medium-high heat; allow time for the oil to heat.
  • Add in the garlic and onions; stir/saute for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the carrots and celery; stir/saute for 5 minutes.
  • Push the vegetables to one side of the pot and add about 1/3 of the ground beef; salt the beef to taste.
  • Cook about 3-5 minutes or until starts to brown (stir the beef, breaking it up as you stir).
  • Push beef to the side (or over the vegetables) and repeat with the second third of the beef.
  • After that starts to brown, push it aside and repeat with the remainder of the beef.
  • When all the beef is done, mix the beef and vegetables together.
  • Add in the tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, sugar, and oregano.
  • Mix well; simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally (break up the tomatoes against the side of the pot as you stir).
  • When the sauce is done, season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve immediately or freeze for later use.
