Easy! Tasty! Basic Meat Sauce

Easy! Tasty! Basic Meat Sauce

Authentic and tasty, but you can make it so quickly. I bet you'll want to heap the sauce on the spaghetti. It's our family's standard recipe for meat sauce.

Ingredients: for 4 portions

Ground beef
1 clove
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
For the sauce:
●Canned whole tomatoes
1 can (400g)
●Tomato ketchup
2 tablespoons
●Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce
2 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon
●Soup stock cubes
1 cube


1. Mince the carrot, onion, garlic. I make it with a food processor to save time.
2. Heat olive oil in a pot. Add minced carrot, onion and garlic. Add the ground beef and stir.
3. After meat is cooked, add the ingredients marked ● and stir frequently. Otherwise the sauce may splatter.
4. Serve the sauce generously over the boiled pasta. It's best to eat it immediately, but you can freeze it up to a month and enjoy later.
5. You can also use the sauce to make amazing toast the next morning! Put the sauce and sliced cheese on bread and toast.

Story Behind this Recipe
