Instead of sugar, I add a whole carrot or two. A trick my mother taught me. I also like using vidalia onion as they add a bit of sweetness as well.

Old recipe. Very good.


  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 large cans tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. oregano or Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained


Mix all ingredients together in a large pot and slowly simmer for an hour or so on the stove -or- put in crock pot on HIGH until mixture is hot; turn to LOW and cook 2-3 hours to blend flavors.

My husband's favorite!


  • 1 lb. ground chuck, browned, drained and washed
  • 1 medium onion, diced and sauteed in light oil
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Herbs de Provence (mixture of dried herbs)
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • black and red pepper, to taste
  • 1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 2 cans water


Saute onions until softened and add washed ground beef, spices, tomatoes, paste and water. Simmer on low 45 minutes to 1 hour. Add water if needed to prevent sticking, or instead of water, add a little spicy hot V-8 juice. Serve over cooked spaghetti or bread sticks.
