Niteowl's spaghetti sauce, a pictorial
    #4193546 - 05/19/05 01:29 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I love to cook. Chinese and Italian are my 2 favorite ethnic foods to cook. I have been making a spaghetti sauce for almost 20 years. I have never used a recipe....just made it by "feel". It has "evolved" into what I'm going to post today.

This sauce takes 4+ hours to make and only costs $30-40

!!!and makes a TON you will end up freezing some!!!!

1 bottle of red wine
1-3tbsp olive oil
1 med onion
1 med bell pepper
1-3 tbsp diced garlic
3 cans (15oz) plain stewed tomato's
2 small can (6oz) tomato paste
1 lg can diced tomatoes
1 can (20-24oz??) spaghetti sauce
1lb gr beef or sausage
Sm-med box of (non-active)mushrooms :smirk:
Italian seasoning
oregano
basil
salt

here's my ingredients

veggies


spices


beef


tomatoes


Start by chopping up the onion and bell pepper


Heat up some olive oil and garlic over a medium heat until the garlic just begins to sizzle. Then add the onion and bell pepper


simmer 20 min, stirring every ~5min


add the stewed tomatoes


Add basil and simmer ~ a half hour, again stirring every ~5min (this is very important, it will scorch if you don't keep it stirred up)


after ~ 30 min simmer


add to big pot


fry beef, and set aside for later


add diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, oregano, 1 can of tomato paste and enough wine to thin the sauce down enough to simmer ~ an hour


After about an hour the sauce will still be a bit chunky


I like mine less chunky so I put a blender to it


add beef and simmer another ~ hour


After an hour it is time for a taste test




Add any spices you feel is needed
Chop up mushrooms and add them to the sauce, add water if your sauce has thickened up, and simmer another ~ hour or until mushrooms are as tender as you want.

Once it is close to being done, if the sauce is still thin, add the other can of tomato paste.
{if you want to stretch it even farther, add the can of spaghetti sauce now}

Heat up oven for your favorite garlic bread.
Boil water, salt and some olive oil to make the pasta, add bread to oven


Come and git it


Time to eat

This is the one I use, I use it for everything that needs tomato sauce.

Olive Oil
2 15oz. cans of whole tomatoes
couple cloves of garlic finely minced
1 medium onion, 1/4 inch dice
1 shredded carrot
3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, or 1 tablespoon dried

Soften the onions in some olive oil, then add the garlic, carrots, and thyme. Cook for a few minutes. Hand crush the whole tomatoes and dump the entire contents into the pot. Simmer for 30 minutes. I usually omit salt, because I don't know what I'll need the sauce for, and if it is with pasta, I cook the pasta in salted water, and use some of the pasta water in the sauce when I dress it.

if you're using canned tomato products,
add a very small pinch of sugar to
get rid of the metalic, acidic taste

well after the hurricanes, it was hard to find good tomatoes. not to mention most of the tomatoes that you get in the supermarket have been artificially ripened, so they're bland anyways. I just bought a couple cans of san marzano tomatoes. I hope they're good.

It only needs a very tiny amount, if you use too much it's gross.

I swear, sometimes I get really disgusted with beef. I love homemade spaghetti and meatballs but I got tired of the beef. I tried Italian sausage, it was ok but just not what I was looking for. Then I made my meatballs exactly the same as usual except I substituted ground chicken for beef and bang that did it. I think I will only use ground chicken from now on. You guys should try it, you might like it too. It's milder and tastier too.

Nice ratio of tomatoes:to other stuff there :smile:

Mine has more onions in it, but that's because onions are the best vegetable ever second only to potatoes.

Might wanna add some wine in the beginning, when heating the tomatoes.  Tomatoes have certian flavor compounds that only break down with alcohol. 

My family has always used pork neck bones to flavor it as well, not ground beef.

Anything that's strong, dark (purple even) and really, really tannic. Good wine is wasted in cooking, but strong wine works really well. I don't often have it, which is a shame, as it always tastes much better with a quarter bottle in (or more, depends on how much you're making)

I add water or wine to it as needed to prevent it from scorching

Thats the beauty of cooking....variations

Look at any recipe as a guide

Add stuff you think would taste good
I like to make it with polish sausage sometimes

exactly

sometimes i 'bastardize' recipes so much that the food either sits in the fridge untouched by anyone and then the dog gets it or the plates,bowls and cooking utensils are practically licked clean

its like hit or miss for me with lots of misses :lol:
