My All Day Spaghetti Sauce

"I'm posting this as a request of BoneMan. It's a good slow cooking sauce even better the next day. It does make a lot and freezes well. You can do a lot with the left overs. I'll post one of our favorites next. Feel free to add or omit anything. I tried real hard to measure it's usually a pinch of this and that, so amount are as close i can get, LOL. Along with the can tom I use tom out of the freezer from the summer garden that have been through the food mill and cooked down. I always have home made meatballs in the freezer so feel free to add your favorite m-ball recipe or store bought. Servings are a guess. Depends on what you do with it and how you freeze the left overs."

  • I a large stock pot heat olive oil over med heat.
  • Add your cubed meats (if using bone-in pork do first) to brown. You want to sear your meat. When meat is seared remove to a plate.
  • To all the drippings add your onions, peppers and shrooms. Saute 3-5 minutes, until soft.
  • Add garlic cook 2 minutes careful not to burn.
  • Return meat to the pot.
  • Add tomato paste.
  • Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add wine cook for 2 minutes. Scrapping the bottom, you want all those good bits.
  • Add the cans of tomatoes stir to mix well. Add all your dry spices and brown sugar.
  • Bring to a soft boil, turn heat down to simmer.
  • Add your meatballs.
  • Use the chicken stock to thin as mine tends to get thick and bubble and spurt.
  • As it simmers all day stir to not burn. Keep on the heat. Add 1/4 cup of the stock at a time as needed.
  • Mine usually cooks 6-8 hours.
  • Serve with pasta of your choice, salad and crusty garlic bread.

I'm a working mom of 2 my son is 14 and my daughter is 11. O.K. 3 kids if you count my hubby. My son is on the picky side but loves food with a kick. My daughter will eat anything(yes even sauerkraut) the only thing hubby won't eat is raw cabbage he's getting better thanks to this site (he even ask me to make slaw). I love to cook and try new things. One of our favorite stations is food network.I've been playing around with pics and updated my pic & my icon. O.k. Tim because well just because i love to cook with the Cd player or radio blasting and i love his stuff. The Dancing Bears because my DH and i are (were) huge dead heads. I have to update the kids pictures or they would be back there again. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
