DIRECTIONS

  • Crumble the ground beef into a skillet and brown with the onions.
  • If beef is very lean, add a tablespoon or two of cooking oil.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add flour, one tablespoon at a time, stirring and cooking each spoonful, before adding the next.
  • The flour must be cooked to preclude a starchy taste through out.
  • Add enough flour to absorb most of the oil.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and the tomato juice, followed by the water.
  • Allow to simmer on low heat to thicken.
  • Adjust consistency as necessary.
  • Add nutmeg and sugar and adjust to taste.
