It was pretty good. I used oyster sauce in place of the sugar, used 4 garlic cloves, I used celery salt instead of regular salt, and then used beef broth in place of the water. I also added about 1/2 tsp of ground fennel and simmered for about 45 minutes. If the tomato sauce is overcooked it gets that acidic flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved it so much I looked up her recipe and made it again - this time I simmered it in the slow cooker and it was even better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made it again with 3 pounds of hamburger and was still amazing - love the meatiness, flavor is an A+++ item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is extremely easy. I browned up ground beef, Italian sausage and onions first. Then I added that with all the other ingredients (except for the sugar in my crockpot and cooked on low for 4 hours. My family doesn't like sweet spaghetti sauce, so I kept out the sugar and it was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is by far my favorite speghetti sauce - and so easy. The only thing I do differenly is chop the stewed tomatoes. I tried the small diced tomatoes but I was surprised that i could taste the difference. Highly recommended! item not reviewed by moderator and published
