This is the best meat sauce that I have every had. I have gotten the recipe out of my "Stoneware Inspirations" cook book from Pampered Chef. I use to sell Pampered Chef and I really enjoyed it. My husband finally talked me out of selling when I was spending more than I was earning. But I have a ton of fun things from them and I love the cook book. This one I have tweaked a little bit so I'll share what I do.
You will need:
5 lbs of hamburger
4-5 medium onions, (I used 3 large white onions this time)
3-4 green peppers, (I used 2 green and 1 orange. We like it with yellow and red too. I usually use one of each color)
5-6 garlic cloves, (again, use to taste, we love garlic so I use a lot)
5 cans (28 oz) diced tomatoes in juice, undrained, (I used whole tomatoes and just cut them up by hand because that is what I had on hand. I prefer to use the petite diced tomatoes)
5 cans (8oz) tomato sauce
3 Tablespoons sugar.
Chop the onions and peppers. I have a garlic press that I use for my garlic but you can mice them if you don't.
So happy to have all this. It lasts a while for us because we only use a bag every two weeks or so because we can get two meals out of one bag.
