  1. 1 tbsp canola oil
  2. 1 yellow onion, diced
  3. 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 3lbs ground beef (a little more or a little wont effect the recipe)
  5. 1 tbsp kosher salt
  6. 2 tsp coarse black pepper
  7. 1 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

  9. 3, 15oz can tomato sauce (I use gefen)
  10. 2-3 bay leaves
  1. In a large over medium heat, add oil and onion.
  2. Cook for 7-8 min stirring frequently until they are soft and just begin to slightly color.
  3. Add garlic and cook for 1 min. Add meat, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
  4. Break up meat very gently, not over working the meat. It will continue to break up as you stir, but you WANT clumps.
  5. Once the meat is cooked and most of the liquid has evaporated add wine.
  6. Cool for 2 minutes until wine has slightly reduced.
  7. Add sauce and bay leaves. Bring mixture to a boil.
  8. Then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour covered.
  9. Serve hot and enjoy.
  1. Serve over pasta, rice, zucchini noodles or with really good crunchy bread!
  2. This recipe freezes incredibly well so definitely double and freeze!
