How To Make kaye's slow cooker spaghetti sauce

  • 1
    Brown in a large skillet the ground beef, onion and garlic. After mixture has browned add salt and pepper. Drain mixture and add to crock pot (use 6 quart bowl).
  • 2
    Add the mushrooms, tomato paste, tomato sauce, crushed tomato, Italian seasoning, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well in crock pot. A little trick I learned is to mix a little bit of water in your tomato cans so you get what's left in the bottom of the cans. Add this to your sauce if it is to thick. It's better than adding plain water.
  • 3
    Cook in crock pot on high for 4 hours. Turn to low for 2 hours. After cooking for 6 hours turn to warm.
  • 4
    Serve with toasted ciabatta bread, a salad and a bottle of fine red wine.
