  • 2Begin by browning the ground beef. While beef is browning, cut up all onions in small
    cubes. Drain all fat. Add 2 tbs. of Olive oil, and add onions. Next cut up all peppers. When onions
    are cooked and somewhat light golden, add the peppers. While this is cooking cut up all
    tomatoes. Once the peppers have softened, you can add the tomatoes. Add all spices and
    spaghetti sauce and mushrooms. Cook for a minimum of 2 hours, best if cooked longer 4-6 hours.
  • 3This option is for the picky eaters who do not like a chunky sauce. First brown the onions i a bit of olive oil. When brown, add the peppers. When the peppers are softened, add the tomatoes and spaghetti sauce. In the meantime brown the ground beef and make sure you drain all the fat (you will add this after you pure the sauce). Cook for about an hour and them pure with a hand blender. Add ground beef, all spices and mushrooms (optional). Cook for a minimum of 1 hours, best if cooked longer 2-3 hours.
