I was thrilled when Kim sent me this recipe idea! Why didn't I think of it?! LOL Maybe because I'm just a busy mom! Who knows?! This sauce was very good! The more I ate it, the more it grew on me. I would definitely make a couple changes to it, but of course, I've done that below so that yours tastes even better than mine! ;) That's just how I roll! LOL
I would like to thank Kim for inspiring me to make this sauce with her mom's recipe! I only added to it! I will post the original recipe below in case you don't want to mess with perfection!
Kim's Grandma's Spaghetti Sauce:
1.5 lbs. ground hamburger
3 Packets French's Spaghetti Sauce mix
2 small cans tomato paste
3 cups water
Salt, pepper, fresh garlic
Now, here's mine!
All Day Spaghetti Sauce
1.5 lbs. Ground Sirloin, UNCOOKED!!!!!
1 16oz. can Tomato Paste
1 large heirloom tomato, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 packets Spaghetti Sauce Mix
4 cups water
3-4 tsp. garlic powder (use a couple fresh cloves if you have it!)
2-3 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1-2 tsp. oregano
Mix together the tomato paste, spaghetti sauce mix, garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano and water.
Add the tomatoes and onions and give a little stir.
Next, crumble the ground sirloin on top.
I just kind of stirred gently after this just to get the meat under the liquid.
Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.
Serve with your favorite pasta. I always add Parmesan on top!
