Ready In:




  • In a large saucepan, brown the ground beef, chopping into small pieces.
  • While the beef is browning, run the 2 cans of diced tomatoes, juice and all, through processer (you can use canned crushed tomatoes, but do not use the "concentrated" crushed tomatoes).
  • When meat is browned, add the crushed tomatoes, garlic, oregano, basil, cayenne and sugar.
  • Bring to a boil and then lower heat to simmer lightly, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, stirring often.
  • This makes enough for about 36 hot dogs, more or less, depending on how heavily you load your sandwich. You can freeze half for a later use.

    had to give this 5 stars because that's all I was allowed!<br/><br/>Simple to make and outstanding to taste!


I am 44 years old living in the same town I have lived in my whole life. I am the third of six children to a couple of working parents, so helping out in the kitchen (and the yard and the garden, etc) while I was growing up was mandatory. Needless to say, as a result, I learned how to cook for a family of eight on a budget My mother was genius when it came to daily preparing delicious meals for a large family! My mother was the daughter of a german farmer in rural Pennsylvania and old habits die hard, so alot of country cooking, homemade breads, biscuits and the like crossed our table on a regular basis. I am now the mother of a lovely daughter, now 19, and my mother has passed away. The old family favorites still find their way to our dinner table along with many many new favorites...only in much smaller quantities! :) Kit and I love trying new things, or just browsing through cookbooks to ooooh and aahhh at the pictures. <br> <br>Origin of EQJunkie. EQ = Everquest (an online MMORPG)...a game I play often.
