The Best Spaghetti Sauce I've Ever Had

Not kidding. This stuff is amazing. And, even more amazing because it's ridiculously easy to make and SUPER cheap. Who doesn't love that? I got this from my friends Dana and Candace who got it from Noel Piper while their husbands were studying under John Piper at Bethlehem Baptist Church.

Savory Spaghetti Sauce {serves about 20 healthy appetites}
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 large onion finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons parsley
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 6-10 drops Tabasco/Texas Pete
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 3 (28 oz) cans tomato sauce
- brown beef and onions in a large skillet; drain
- mix in all the seasonings and add tomato sauce and cook on med-high heat
- simmer for at least 30 minutes, but the longer it simmers the better it'll be

Variations & Tips:
- Instead of cooking on the stove, you can brown the meat and onions and then simmer everything in a crockpot for several hours
- Often I make a vegetarian batch so that I can add meatballs to it, or use it as marinara sauce.
- This sauce freezes really well; once you finish cooking, put a dinner portion in ziploc bags and put them in the freezer for a quick and delicious dinner when you need it.
