Cin's Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

My suggestion is serving with a large tossed salad and garlic-cheese bread.

I boil my pasta in a beef broth, with a bit sea salt added.

I also add some of the pasta water (after boiling the pasta) into my sauce.
Anwhere from 1/2 cup to 1 cup, depending on how much pasta you make.

I cook with very little salt, and hardly ever add it to my finished dishes, (I try to keep on a low sodium diet).

Of course another varation to this sauce is to use a mixture of 1/2 ground serloin and 1/2 sausage. Which is what I do most of the time...as I tend to have it around more often than 'a new york steak'.

You can always make your own Pasta....my friend Shirley makes it and sometimes gives me some (I also posted a picture of her pasta drying).

How to Make Cin's Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. After cooking a new york steak, in a pan, dice, rip, cut or tare it up.
    Saute onions, garlic, and bell pepper in the pan you cooked steak in, add the flour here or later.

    Pour 2 cans of Campbell's tomato soup and 1 can of water and 1 can stewed tomatoes (with it's liquid) into a stock pot and add in the steak meat. Stir to mix.

    Add the diced sauteed onion, bell pepper and garlic (can use onion & garlic powders, but I don't like the added sodium) and mix everything together. Add the mushroom pieces or sliced.
    I usually stir the tablespoon of flour here in with the onions and bell peppers after they are sauteed just before adding to the stock pot.

    Add the Italian spice blend and drop in a bay leaf.
    Add salt and pepper, but, to me the salt and pepper are optional as I sometimes add pepper but usually not salt (I let them add salt at the table if they need).

    Stir to mix everything together.

    Let simmer for at least 30 minutes to an hour (until desired thickness is achived).

    Juices from the steak give the tomato soup a delicious spaghetti sauce flavor.
  2. Boil a pot of pasta, drain.
    Add sauce and pasta together.

    Mix together well, and enjoy!!!!
  3. P.S. Sometimes I add a cup of red wine to my sauce (before it starts to simmer).
