3 cans of tomato paste (156 ml)
1/2 jar of chili sauce
3 celery sticks chopped
3 carrots chopped
2 onions chopped
1 container of mushrooms chopped
1 large red bell pepper
3 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
1 teaspoon of dried basil
1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
3 bay leaves
1- In a large saucepan, brown the meat and drain the oil.
2- Add the chopped vegetables to the meat.
3- Add remaining ingredients and stir well.
4- Let simmer uncovered for 3 hours at very low heat (I use a spatter guard). Stir often, it sticks very easily to the bottom of the saucepan. Taste and add some salt if needed.
You can freeze your amazing sauce in freezer bags or containers. You will have enough for months!
Hope it’s a hit at your house.
