"A very easy, stand-alone recipe. It's also a great base recipe, ripe for customization as shown by the comments! I have to admit I generally make a sauce based on a Mario Battali recipe, which is much more time consuming and costly. The Battali recipe creates a great sauce, but I often don't have the time (hours) to tend to it. This sauce is flavorful, adaptable, and the newest addition to my Big Oven collection.
By the way, in response to the last post, looks to me like Webtexan added the recipe and RKG1 added the photo."

In a skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink: drain. Transfer to a slow cooker. Add the next 10 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until heated through. Discard bay leaf. Serve over spaghetti. Yield:6-8 servings
Tried this one tonight with a few changes to suit what I had and my daughter in law who can't eat spicy foods loved it.

marilynmartin 1 year agoEven before it's cooked, it taste good. I think this could be the best spaghetti sauce I have ever made.
Bvanhoogten 1 year agoLoved it! I added mushrooms, celery, and a dash of cinnamon. Thank you for sharing; )
harrisonkraft 2 years agoI will probably substitute crushed tomato for diced next time, but the sauce turned out very well.
BroodyMama 2 years agoMy whole family LOVED this. Even my 7 year old who hates 'chunky' anything loved it and she was a hardcore 'spaghetti, no sauce' kind of a gal so that's saying a lot. I wasn't sure about the brown sugar and the hot sauce but it all totally works! Thanks for a great recipe!!!
StaceyBob 2 years agoAwesome sauce! I made it using only the listed ingredients to get a feel for THIS recipe and it was great! Next time, I'll try adding some crushed red pepper or green bell peppers to see how tweaks will work. Nice job!
Billyroy7 3 years agoGooood stuff.. I added 4 cloves of crushed garlic, some red pepper and a cup of cheap merlot, which really kicked it up with flavor.

Mister-B 5 years agoI didn't have time to give the sauce a full 8 - 10 hours in the crock pot so I simmered it for a couple of hours on the stove and then let it finish up in the crock pot. I made a double batch on my first attempt and it came out just fine.

Beachbumette 6 years agoVery good, easy, and wonderful aroma! I wanted to make more of a marinara sauce, so I left out the meat and onions and added 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and about a half a cup of water to thin it a little. Next time I will try it with the Italian sausage and onions.
swibirun 6 years agoThis was a very nice sauce. Spaghetti sauce is always best when it cooks forever, like this. I substituted premade meatballs instead of the meat. I also added some red pepper instead of hot sauce. Oh yes, a minced shallot too.
sgrishka 7 years agoThis recipe is terrific! Next time I might try adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper just to spice it up a bite more.
