Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet.
  2. Add onions to the beef and cook for a few minutes to add the onion flavor to the meat.
  3. Drain and add beef to a large stew pot.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot.
  5. Use the Tomato Paste can, fill with water (filtered is best) and add to the pot.
  6. Chilli powder, Garlic, Salt and Pepper should be added to suit your palate. Usually, I coat the top of the mixture with a very thin layer of each.
  7. Bring to a boil.
  8. Immediately lower heat to simmer.
  9. Allow sauce to simmer for at least 2.5 hours - 3-3.5 is better.
